Cake Poll: Love and Chocolate!

Win it: Cake poll!
How time flies! It's been a while since our last Cake Poll, so we're making up for it by offering a very sweet treat: an original (not a print!) Cakespy watercolor! The watercolor (shown top) will come in a 4x5 inch frame and will go to just one lucky winner. All you have to do to enter is leave a comment with your responses to the below poll, centered around the star of all February sweetness: chocolate! Here goes:

  1. Chocolates for Valentine's Day: cute or cliché?
  2. The chocolate box: which flavor would you rather leave for others?
  3. Milk chocolate: amateur hour or respectable citizen?
  4. Chocolate in savory foods (mole sauce, etc): awesome, or awful?
  5. Hot chocolate: with or without marshmallows?
  6. Chocolate-flavored or scented body products: ooh, or eww?
  7. What's your favorite chocolate dessert?
The poll is open for anyone (US and international!) to enter; the deadline is 12 p.m. PST on Saturday, February 14. The winner will be announced shortly after!

Respectable citizen for sure. I prefer good quality milk chocolate over dark anytime.

Ooh. (But vanilla is even better.)

1. Chocolates for Valentine's Day: cute or cliché? Cute. You can never go wrong with chocolate, as far as I'm concerned.
2. The chocolate box: which flavor would you rather leave for others? The one with the toffee centre that always feels like it's going to suck out my fillings.
3. Milk chocolate: amateur hour or respectable citizen? Amateur hour.
4. Chocolate in savory foods (mole sauce, etc): awesome, or awful? Honestly? I can't say; never tried chocolate in any savoury foods.
5. Hot chocolate: with or without marshmallows? Without. Never been a real fan of marshmallows.
6. Chocolate-flavored or scented body products: ooh, or eww? Oooooooh!
7. What's your favorite chocolate dessert? Well, anything with chocolate would be great, but I particularly like cheesecakes with chocolate in them. And just plain old chocolate cake.
