BEN: Well, we’re celebrating it today.
CAPTAIN FANTASTIC, 2016
I’m so excited for the Oscars tomorrow! It’s been a little crazy with the recipes this week but I hope you all have been enjoying them. This recipe for chocolate cake and whipped cream is from the movie, Captain Fantastic, starring Viggo Mortensen. He is nominated for Actor in Leading role along with Casey Affleck, Denzel Washington, Ryan Gosling, and Andrew Garfield.
This cake from a scene in the movie after Ben and his kids basically stole from a supermarket after faking a heart attack. When they finally escaped the scene with bags of fruits and vegetables, Ben surprised the children with a large chocolate cake covered in sprinkles. He tops the cake with whipped cream and the kids dive right into it with their hands. What’s great about this cake is that it really doesn’t need to perfectly frosted because the cake was quite rough looking after being in Ben’s backpack.
