With a carving knife

Today was Fast Sunday. And so, after church was over, food eaten, the fast broken, Michelle went off with cocoa and various dark chocolates and almond paste in hand to go play with an old friend also in town on break.  (I’ll link to her blog and pictures (scroll down) when she posts them.) Celebrate with dessert!

And so they had fun making chocolate cupcakes with a chocolate-coated marzipan mouse and cheese on top of each; Michelle came home with a container with two layers’ worth in a rubbermaid. On the top layer, there was one mouse that had a triangle to nibble, the one I got handed was facing a whole wheel of almondy Brie with a tiny bite’s worth taken out, and there was one with a red slice. Totally charming.

She mentioned that they couldn’t use white chocolate to draw with because she hadn’t ever found any that didn’t have dairy in it. I told her that’s okay; if they hadn’t been done in dark chocolate (and dark chocolate is always a good thing), they would have been three blond mice.

Given your penchant for punning, I’m assuming that your mis-spelling of mousse was deliberate. Three blind mousse?

Three blond mice. Bravo!

Well, you’ve left out the obvious issue that the white stuff ISN’T chocolate, which is far more serious than blind, blond, mousse mice!

that white chocolate stuff is but a pale imitation of the real thing

no blond mousse need apply! bring on the dark stuff!!

I agree with Chery. Chuckling at the punniness. Have you ever seen such a thing in your life….
