Thirty-five days! That’s how long it has been since my last post. And this isn’t even a real post with a recipe. I am ashamed.
Oh well, let’s move on to cake.
I ended up bringing home two triple layer vanilla buttercream cakes last week from class. They were blank canvases calling out to me so I made more buttercream and searched my pantry and fridge for things to decorate them with. I found raspberry jam, sliced almonds and a chocolate bar. Berries were on sale at the market (which is practically as convenient as my pantry) so I grabbed some raspberries and strawberries.
I think they came out really pretty and the toppings added some dimension to the otherwise, very plain cakes.
This is a chocolate mousse cake that was delicious. I loved how thin the cake layers were and the ganache we poured over the top was shiny and delicious.
There was also a whole orange chiffon cake that I never got a picture of. So that means I brought home a total of 3 1/2 cakes.
What do you do with 3 1/2 cakes when you don’t know many people in a new town and work at a CAKE store?
You give them to your new upstairs neighbors who feel too guilty to say no because their washing machine just drained through the ceiling onto your bed.
You tell your employees that they aren’t allowed to eat any cupcakes today because they have to eat the whole box of cake you brought in.
That’s what you do.
