My grandpa's 70th birthday was last weekend.  I asked him if he'd like me to make him something, and he told me he'd like either lemon meringue pie or a chocolate cake.

So, since my grandpa is just the coolest guy ever, I made both Smiley

I don't have pictures of it sliced (I feel weird taking pictures of food.  I didn't want to cause a commotion and be all, "WAIT!  Let me take a picture before you dive in," you know?), but I do have pictures of these tartlettes so you can see the delicious filling:

The idea and recipe are straight from foodbeam, an incredible blog full of fantastic pictures and recipes.  This one is just delicious! 

It's not as big as it seems to be - it was only 6 inches in diameter. 

I'm pleased to report that everything went over very well!

Note to self: have incredibly baking-adept grandkids, sit back, and wait for 70 to hit.

These look absolutely delicious!!!  That cake may be 6 inches wide but it looks a mile high.  Beautifully executed.

Your meringue looks so pretty! And the first thing I thought about when I saw the chocolate cake was shoving my entire face into it. XD Diabetes through osmosis!
