Today I’m going to let you know about a cake I recently made for two of my coworkers’ birthday (they happened to have the same birth date). I have so many tarts and pastries listed on this blog, I thought it might be good to feature a cake. The cake I made for their birthday is a chocolate cake, frosted and filled with peanut butter cream cheese frosting, and then “doused” with a chocolate ganache over the top. Indeed, it is rich. I was a bit scared it would be too rich and too over-the-top for most people’s senses, but judging from the string of compliments that I received and continue to receive at random about that cake, I would say that people do like a little richness in their lives sometimes, despite their objections and mumblings about being on a “diet.” This cake is completely satisfying, especially served with homemade coffee and caramel ice creams like I did for the birthday celebration. I think a little of something completely satisfying, no matter how bad it is for you, is often better for you, both for your spirit and your body, then a lot of something that may be better for you, but fails to satisfy and “hit the mark.” Do you agree?
I hope you enjoyed the pictures and I apologize for not being able to pass you a slice of cake through the computer screen as I am throughly enjoying my slice! 😉
Until next time,
