#5: The Meaning of Life — Gibsons Bar and Steakhouse
Go bananas with this colossally decadent chocolate layer cake from Chicago's Gibsons Bar and Steakhouse. Each six-pound cake slice is made up of five luscious layers of creme de cocoa-infused chocolate mousse, sliced ripe bananas and raspberry preserves. The cake also contains secret hints of citrus, which it gets from a fruity simple syrup that gets brushed into each of its repeating layers.
