No Post For 2 Weeks...

Thought I'd give fair warning that I won't be doing any bake along cakes for the next two weeks.  I'm building my sister-in-law's wedding cake and I will be busy.  The cake will be a 6-9-12" round stacked cake with the new German Chocolate Cake with Milk Chocolate Syrup and layered with Raspberry Ganache. 

Almond Shamah Chiffon

If a recipe typically calls for the use of my two Kitchen Aid mixer bowls, a food processor, and more, I usually avoid it like the plague unless it is chocolate and Rose's Triple Chocolate Cake (those of you who have had it know what I mean.)  However, I decided to give the Almond Shamah Chiffon a go since most of the recipes inspired by David Shamah over the years have been worth the effort (take, for instance his Jumbles in Rose's Christmas Cookies).

Barcelona Brownies

Brownies are my go-to baked good. They are simple, satisfying, and oh so yummy. The Barcelona Brownies are no exception. While slightly more complex to prepare than traditional brownies, they can still be made by hand and if all of your ingredients are at the correct temperature, they will come together in a snap.

The Moment I've Been Waiting For...

My personalized and autographed copy of Rose's Heavenly Cakes arrived yesterday...oh the giddiness!

Well, here's what I could fit in...

Still smiling about it!
