Rich chocolate cake, covered in a semi-sweet chocolate ganache, all wrapped up in vanilla buttercream....that's what the Black & White Cake that the Cake Slice Bakers baked this month is...and it is delicious! So glad that I didn't let the fact that I couldn't get it baked by our deadline of the 20th discourage me from baking it. It wasn't a difficult cake to make, a few steps involved, but nothing too hard. Since the buttercream didn't work for me on last month's cake, I decided to just go ahead and go with my tried and true buttercream recipe, which was a great compliment to the ganache.
The Rev gave this cake high praise, saying he wouldn't change a thing...I'm also pretty sure that he thinks I sinned by drinking water with my slice rather than milk (he won't eat chocolate without milk!). And now, settle a great marital debate for us...the Rev does not like when I give him a dessert fork, but that is what they are for...dessert...he says it is like sending a knight to do battle with a dagger. Am I the only one that uses dessert forks?
