This week in my cake decorating classes, we were to finish a cake! I had an order for a Montreal Canadiens birthday cake which was perfect for my Beginner class, and I wanted to make Paul something special for Valentine’s Day for my flower class. Both of the cakes turned out beautifully, and I’m really happy with what I have learned in my courses. Next week, I start a fondant and gum paste flower class, so I’m looking forward to that too!
Using the flowers and techniques that I learned in my course, I made a Buckeye (chocolate and peanut butter) Valentine’s Cake! The cake itself is delicious . . . we broke into it early The bottom layer is a heavy chewy brownie like cake, middle layer is smooth peanut butter cream, and it’s topped off with a chocolate ganache! Yum!
What are YOU doing for Valentine’s Day?
