Did I mention that I learned something this weekend?

Don't mix hot or warm melted chocolate with cold whipped cream frosting...it will do this awful thing called "seizing," which, I'm told [c.f. paganmommy's excellent technical description down-thread under the cake post: http://www.livejournal.com/users/happypete/226892.html?thread=1104460#t1104460] is the spontaneous separation of the fats and the oils. This turns beautiful whipped cream frosting and yummy chocolate into a nasty, wet, lumpy mess...

In the lemons -> lemonade department, I risked tasting it, and it still tasted good--so I used it for the inter-layer filling, and I used the store-bought frosting for the outside...
