Chocolate cake is a cake flavored with melted chocolate or cocoa powder. Chocolate cake is made with chocolate, it can be made with other ingredients, as well. These ingredients include fudge, vanilla creme, and other sweeteners. The history of chocolate cake goes back to 1764, when Dr. James Baker discovered how to make chocolate by grinding cocoa beans between two massive circular millstones. In 1828, Conrad Van Houten of the Netherlands developed a mechanical extraction method for extracting the fat from cacao liquor resulting in cacao butter and the partly defatted cacao, a compacted mass of solids that could be sold as it wasrock cacao' or ground into powder. The processes transformed chocolate from an exclusive luxury to an inexpensive daily snack. A process for making silkier and smoother chocolate called conching was developed in 1879 by Swiss Rodolphe and made it easier to bake with chocolate as it amalgamates smoothly and completely with cake batters. Until 1890 to 1900, chocolate recipes were mostly for drinks.

Everyone should have coworkers like these. 

A woman who lost her job said her colleagues gave her a cake with perhaps the most uplifting message one could receive under such circumstances. (Note: The cake includes some situationally appropriate NSFW language.)

”My entire department was eliminated and they decided to do our job at the corporate office,” the woman identified as llamaface9603 wrote on reddit. “After we unknowingly trained them to do our jobs for a month.”

She said her boss brought in cupcakes, “which we all thought was a shit bag move. So my friends did this on my last day. They also took me out to lunch. They are good people.”
