This cake was created for a celebration. Just by looking at it you know something good is happening. I got this incredible recipe from my cookbook "BakeWise" and it turned out so amazing! The cake was rich and moist and the ganache frosting was h-e-a-v-e-n. This was my first time making and working with modeling chocolate. It is a challenge to say the least. It gets sticky and hard to work worth after about 5 minutes so you have to work fast. After beating it with my rolling pin multiple time (my neighbors probably thought I was beating someone up) I got it rolled out and shaped. I was so excited about the result of this cake - it is my pride and joy (for now).
The reason for this most fabulous cake was to celebrate Mike's mother's birthday. Our birthday's are just two days apart and she shares my loves for chocolate.
p.s. - what do you think of the new blog look? I thought I would change it up since my life is going to be in change up mode soon... eeek!
