    Hi everyone! I am 15 years old and an aspiring baker. While looking through a Culinary textbook from the Culinary Institute of America that my uncle gave me, I came across a recipe entitled "Chocolate XS Cake". Unable to find a description within the book, I was hoping someone here could help me. /img/vbsmilies/smilies/smile.gif  What does "XS" stand for? Surely it does not mean extra small. What makes this cake different from any other chocolate cake? Thank you!

    Looked up the recipe on page 629 in my copy, perhaps it means Chocolate Excess Cake?

    XS=Excess?

    That's impssible, Pete.  How can there be an excess of chocolate?
