And here are some photos of her greatly enjoying that cake... She kept trying to eat it all in one bite. This is why we give her small pieces and don't plop the whole cake in front of her.
I'm giving her the sign for "leave it." She surprisingly knows that very well. Even though she doesn't like to do it.
And..... nom. nom. nom.
The adults get a black forest gateau. Sort of like a cake, but it’s French or something like that. It tastes just as good to me. This one had lots of steps to it, baking the cake, putting a ganache frosting on it, making the filling and icing, and then putting those on too. This cake is not healthy in any way shape or form, but aren’t those the best?
I love how whipping cream can go from this...
...to this, in just a few minutes.
And the assembly... start with one cake. Put some ganache on top of it. Top with frosting.
Top with cherries.
Top with another layer. Finish frosting and decorating!
I also made some dark chocolate trees to add to the cake. They looked nice for awhile, but the apartment was warm so they slowly thawed. We ended up having a few fallen trees on our cake.
This cake is definitely a keeper. Really fantastic, but you can only have small slices at a time since it is so rich.
