Who remembers the movie, Men Don’t Leave that apparently only Bossy and her mom saw, starring Jessica Lange as a housewife named Beth, who begins life anew after her husband’s death by providing desserts for a gourmet food store; and one dessert in particular, which the Jessica Lange character names Beth Cakes?
Well. Bossy has a friend who is about to embark in a similar business, baking sweets for her local grocery store, and if this chocolate mouse cake with hard chocolate shell is any indication, she will be filling orders into the next century.

You had me at “cake.”
Brenda saysFebruary 23, 2009 at 8:37 am
I am now one week overdue with the fourth child. That cake would look lovely at my pity party I am having for myself this morning!

Correction: three people saw “Men Don’t Leave.” I have no recollection of Beth Cake, however.
Cat saysFebruary 23, 2009 at 9:22 am
I never saw the movie, but I’d love to see this cake up close and in person.
Sharon saysFebruary 23, 2009 at 9:37 am
I love that movie!
The Domestic Goddess saysFebruary 23, 2009 at 9:55 am
I love that movie. And I’m excited for said friend, too!
And cannot wait to eat the stuff.

Big fat chocolate smoochies to you, Bossy! If my sprained thumb permits, we should be in a Store Near You by Friday.

Holy moly I’m drooling over here… does she do mail order? Seriously?!

I loved that movie and so wanted to kill the little kid who was the friend of Lange’s youngest son when he steals the boy’s share of the winning lottery ticket. So cruel.
And of course a very young Chris O’Donnel getting shagged by Joan Cusack.

That? Looks divine.

When I saw the small picture, I thought it was a round piece of prosciutto. It took me a good minute or two to realize that your talented friend DID NOT make a chocolate-prosciutto mousse (or mouse?) cake.
I’m as smart as a bag of hammers.

I selflessly offer myself up as a guinea pig! I will gladly be the judge of that!

I want cake!!!
Emily saysFebruary 23, 2009 at 7:31 pm
I thought it was some weird old pilot’s hat! But I think a chocolate shell is a huge improvement on a dumpy hat.
TINA saysFebruary 23, 2009 at 9:04 pm
Omg, how much to ship one of those to Pennsylvania?
Must. have. that. cake.
jandondi saysFebruary 23, 2009 at 10:09 pm
I truly though that was that cute little cap you bought a while back. No?
SnowWhitemommy saysFebruary 24, 2009 at 1:38 am
At first glance, I too, thought it was an old leather pilot’s hat!
Double take….. oh…..it is a cake!
Laurel saysFebruary 24, 2009 at 10:23 am
I thought it was one of the kids from the Little Rascals hat but I bet it tastes a whole lot better. I need to see that movie really dig Ms Lange
Coco saysMarch 3, 2009 at 7:28 pm
I saw the movie and your boyfriend John Cussack’s sister played in it as well.
