The Pursuit of... birthday cake! [May. 30th, 2010|12:40 am]

Well, my mom was too frazzled by the fact that my former stepfather was having an auction at our house to bake me a cake, so I had to do it myself. She has this amazing book called "The Cake Doctor" that has a whole bunch of cakes that start with a box mix that you add stuff to and make it delicious. It took me a couple of days to pick one, but I finally ended up with this fan-freaking-tastic Lethal Peppermint Chocolate cake. It's made with dark chocolate fudge cake, peppermint buttercream frosting in the center (made with crushed peppermints and peppermint schnapps), and a chocolate ganache (also with peppermint schnapps) on the top and sides. Topped it off with bits of Ande's mints and some of the leftover crushed peppermints. It's pretty amazing.

It's pretty.

Even the inside is pretty. :)

Little blurry, but you get the idea.
