Cocoa tastes yucky

Recently Danny was "helping" me make a Texas sheet cake. I'm not sure why this cake is called a Texas sheet cake - maybe because it's big and flat. I had the recipe long before I became a Texan. So anyway, the recipe calls for quite a bit of cocoa. As he often does, Danny wanted to taste several of the ingredients. He sat on the counter tasting, watching me add a few, trying to stir, tasting more. Soon he came to the delicious looking cocoa. He dipped his finger in, tasted, and then with a disgusted glare shoved the entire box of cocoa of the counter. Needless to say, we had a powdery mess. I'm not sure what possessed me to let Danny get off the counter while I attempted to clean up the mess - we soon had cocoa foot prints all over the floor along with Danny's cocoa-y PJs. At this point there is nothing left to do but laugh and get the camera. He decided the finished product (uncooked batter - yes Heather, I let him eat the raw egg too) was pretty tasty and I'm pleased to say our floor is now cocoa free.

I am glad you got pictures, so funny! I laugh when I think about his coco footprints :)
I hope he's feeling better too!
