T wished for a similar cake but reversed! Creativity took hold of me and I envisioned a white cake, filled with lime bavaroise and a white chocolate ganache. Sounds good right?
Well, first two components were spot on. Tall cake, great tasting, shape holding, tart bavaroise. Layering the cake went well. White ganache wasn't such a great idea, don't know what happened, I warmed cream, poured it over the white chocolate and stirred to combine, let it cool a bit and poured it over the cake. And the cake cracked. Seriously, we had a St Andreas fault all over the cake, and then some more.. the whole surface of the cake marred and started to crumble... Felt very sorry for T, his cake was equally tasty but looks count as well in a birthday cake. Luckily there was some more chocolate.....
As you can imagine the fountain was a huge success! Although chocolate is said to have a special attraction to women I declare solemnly that the cluster of people I saw gathered around the fountain like it was a free beertender.....was predominantly male! (either small or large). Thanks Larein for lending us the fountain!
Looking a bit tired, dinner is served, almost done! We had Chili con carne, quacamole, sour cream, taco's and flour tortillas and it was yummy!
Stay tuned for some of the other bits and bites I served this day and of course some pics of their kids birthday party!
