My friend Judy celebrated Thanksgiving with a sumptuous meal and for dessert she served an array of different pastries and one of them was this Chocolate Bourbon Cake. A wonderful time was had by all and with time I will post some of the fantastic foods from that beautiful evening. She made two and three of everything so as to be able to feed a couple other families - it was lovely!
