keith had me make TWO birthday cakes for him... and ONE of them (the chocolate one) was really delicious... i was shocked that i baked it! the vanilla cake was a little too sweet due to the frosting- i still suck at making frosting! but i do think i have learned baking techniques from alexis! although i am still desperate for help in the frosting department when it comes to making it look pretty...the double chocolate layer cake with ganache frosting was frosted fine- even though the picture looks like it has bubbles, once it hardened in the refrigerator they were all gone. working with the butter cream though aaaackkkk!!!!
oh- and the double chocolate layer cake with ganache frosting...guess how many ww points per slice (big slice)....15!
vanilla cake pre frosting...(probably better pre-frosting!)
vanilla butter cream.
double chocolate layer cake from epicurious.com
ganache- can you see the butter on the whisk!
finished double chocolate layer cake.
almost my entire family and keith's entire family were at dinner at stanton social (so good!) and as you know i could barely talk which was humorous (i'm 80% healed from vocal chord injury so i have one more week of silence but for when i'm on air)..and hopefully i will have pictures soon from my uncle who took pictures THE WHOLE TIME! (can you say bad camera angles?!?!)
