Cake-Off Challenge: New Mexican Chocolate Cake

The fourth cake to be tasted and tested in Round 3 of the 2010 Christmas Cake-Off Challenge was Chris’s New Mexican Chocolate Cake. When you go to a vendor of food in New Mexico, they ask you, “red or green?” This apparently refers to the type of chilli sauce you require. If you ask for Christmas, you get both – so this is a chocolate cake with two kinds of chilli lurking beneath its sticky skin.

Guest Judge, Lord Forrester of Governor’s Bay, had this to say about the creation:

Dark and bitter smell. Rich and smooth texture with a slight je sais quoi of chilli.

Other comments from the assembled tasters included “Worth waiting for,” despite rather full stomachs by this point, and “It smells so good.”
