I mentioned we were celebrating my daughter's birthday this weekend~
Mylène..her big sister was hosting for our family..
I was assigned dessert~
I wanted to make too many things..Susan's 3 level mousse.. another mousse cake I make 14 yrs ago.. cupcakes..a new cake recipe from Canadian Living~..
I knew I wanted to add Cadbury fingers around..instead of KiKats like last year..
And some macarons I had bought and frozen.I also wanted to try a new buttercream recipe that goes with the cake..but wanted a shiny ganache top.
This is the cake that never ended:)
First of all I made the mousse cake..the mousse..done..the cake ..done..and I put the baked cake on a rack when done but went out and left it there..It was high and pretty and lovely..no worries..
No worries my eye..I came in after 1/2 an hr..and it looked like a pancake.:(
Onto cake number 2..my wish seemed to be coming true..I would make several cakes..:(
So I kept the mousse ..threw out the cake that was supposed to go w/..and started over with this one..
I put the rich mousse in the middle of 2 layers..(I kept it at 2 layers for the height of the Cadbury fingers.. Frosted the top with Ganache..the sides with the buttercream to hold the fingers..and rosetted the top to hold the macarons..
My Rosettes need perfecting..but..I love that 2D tip Chris made me buy:)The rosettes are "le fun".
Added Love..and then added Happy Birthday later in the day..
I am so indebted to so many for everything I never learned before the internet.
All in all the cake turned out just how I pictured it in my mind's eye and I was grateful.
Cake for 12~
Our lovely daughter turns 37..I loved her back then ..love her now♥
The party was a fabulous party.
I mentioned Max 6..offered me a framed original this past week..
His stars are almost a trademak of his work..
In their office there are so many of his paintings on toiles..all mediums.
Makes us smile~
We're in the middle:)
