Some time ago I made a little dessert. I referred to it as the "Ultimate Dessert" because it was just so darn delectable and scrumptious I could think of no other name that would do it justice.
To this day its hubby's favorite.
So I thought I would be all creative and thoughtful and make him a cake that was entirely based on the Ultimate Dessert.
Now why, oh why, would I make a cake for a guy that had ruffle lookin like thingies on it?
Well, I had a good reason. My dad told me I could.
See, I thought about the "ideal" Fathers Day cake for weeks! I drew sketches. I did random google searches. Nothing seemed to represent what I wanted to portray.
So I finally asked my dad, "What would be the ideal design of a Fathers Day Cake? What flavor is the best? Do you like a little or a lot of frosting? I NEED YOUR HELP!"
He said something that changed my life.
"Cakes are like beer. If I am picking it out for myself I have a preference. If it is a gift from someone else then I like everything."
And THAT is why there are ruffle thingy things all over my hubby's Fathers Day cake.
I feel like I need a big hard cover novel in my lap open to the center and that I need to abruptly slam it shut in a overly dramatic fashion.
Now, truth be told I really, really wanted to try out the pretty ruffle thingies in PINK, but I thought that was pushing it just a bit.
Anywho, getting to the "Ultimate Dessert" part.
The Ultimate Dessert is a cinnamon cookie surrounding rich vanilla frosting drizzled on chocolate.
The Ultimate Dessert cake is a luscious cinnamon cake surrounding a heavenly white chocolate cake covered in a delightful chocolate frosting.
Truth be told, I would add more frosting next time.
But I say that every time I cook. Imagine how annoying it is for my husband.
"But honey," he will gently say, "we are eating pork chops," as he slowly moves his head back and forth in pity.
This cake really is delicious and fun and easy and all in all I am happy with the results.
And I giggle every time I see this picture cause it looks like pacman.
Man this is a wordy post.
And there really are too many pictures. You know how some people have these beautiful amazing food blogs and they make recipes and post one picture and its fabulous? Why cant I do that???
Apparently I have no filter this morning. My apologies.
