Tortas de las Tres Leches

Eat your heart out ShamWow!  There is a new super-absorbent material on the block -- Biscuit de Savoie!  This cake is amazing and the next time I have a disastrous spill in the kitchen, I can pull my 1st attempt out of the freezer to the rescue.  That sort of sums up my relationship with sponge cakes.

Whipped Cream Cake

I am feeling a little guilty about this post.  The Whipped Cream Cake from RHC is the first cake I made from the book....waaay back in September.  This is a simple, easy, and delicious cake that makes for a great way to use up that extra whipped cream sitting in the fridge.  It is also my favourite photo from RHC.  I don't have any great recollections of what I did...only that it was simple (but I didn't have high butterfat cream...infact...the best I can get here is 36% ...although I can get Creme Fraiche which is 40%...perhaps an interesting experiment in the future??)  Regardless the cake turned out and I took it to a mommy party and served it with raspberry curd that I made as a test for the wedding cake I was working on, and it was a hit!
