Birthday Cake

Recently I baked a birthday cake for my good friend, Susan Fae. It was a special birthday and I thought it deserved a special cake. The recipe is from Caprial’s Desserts by Caprial Pence. I am not including the recipe because it is a compilation of four recipes. To make it reasonable, you need to spread the construction out over a few days. I like to allow 3 days. I baked the cake layers about a week ahead and froze them. I took photos once I started the rest of the recipes to give you a glimpse of the process. I give you the Chocolate Toffee Mousse Cake.cake layers toffee toffee pieces cake filling chopped toffee filling with toffee building the cake chopped chocolate chocolate melting in cream ganache mixing ganache cake almost done birthday cake

  4. I think the cake looks terrifying… to make and to be presented with, I hope she was suitably shocked.

    1. Not a huge shock, she knew it was coming. I’m hoping there might still be a little piece in the freezer for me to taste…
