A volcano is a chocolate cake with a melted chocolate center that oozes out when you cut into it. Luckily for me, Chili's sells them to go, which I was able to experience tonight. The molten chocolate center necessitates a short photo shoot because it can become a huge mess pretty quickly. Clearly there is a learning curve on artfully drizzling the chocolate sauce so it doesn't clump strangely like mine did.
I bounced a 1/4 CTO-gelled flash off a wall about 2' to the left of the volcano.
