Cakes, Desserts

I can be a total brat sometimes. Like attitude city, population: ME. I’ve mentioned this before. So when I see recipes that have the name: “Jessica’s Best Blank” or “Best Blank You’ve Ever Eaten,” I get way bratty. I kinda think those recipes are super self-righteous.

Calling for only two ingredients (chocolate wafers and whipped cream), means anyone at any time can do this successfully.
