Chocolate Cake and Fresh Strawberries!!!

The first and third Sunday's of the month we have home fellowship with a group from our church. We meet at the home of one of our Asst. Pastors. We get started by eating an enormous amount of food and visiting with each other, then the kids go to the family room and play while the adults spend some time in worship, study, and prayer. After that, we get back to the kitchen for DESSERT!!! It's a really good time and we've had the opportunity to get to know people from our church that we wouldn't ordinarily have had the chance to build any type of relationship.

All that to say that the food comes from everyone in the group. We all volunteer to bring something or other. For tonight, I decided to make a chocolate cake, with a creamy cheesecake filling, and a whipped vanilla topping. Then to make the whole thing pretty and extra tasty, it is covered in sliced fresh strawberries and drizzled with dark chocolate.

Can we have dessert first??? PLEASE!!!

That looks like my kind of cake! I love how "glamorous" the strawberries and the drizzled dark chocolate make the cake look.

How exactly did you make the chocolate...?
