Are you one of those people that like birthday cake? The cake is among the most revered pastries in America. Some people even made up a birthday cake milk shake (which I find disgusting). I think cake tastes like an airy sponge. And why you want airy sponge for dessert is beyond me. But no one seems to listen to me and everyone still wants cake at their birthday, so I worked on this red wine chocolate cake recipe that is dense and moist with depth of flavor.
