20th Birthday Cake For My Girlfriend
by M. Brandt
20th Birthday Cake
I made a simple cake for my girlfriend's 20th birthday (the second night of celebrations...:P). I took the recipe I had for a molleux au chocolat (chocolate moulds?), and adapted it to a cake form. I essentially took the same ingredients, flour, eggs, chocolate, sugar and so forth, but mixed them differently and at different times. The white tag is marzipan with chocolate writing (tempered chocolate in a small paper).
I am in a hotel school and thus have access to many recipe books in the library, but this one comes from experimenting with a pastry chef's recipe and fine-tuning it to my taste!
Is it easy to make?
-VERY easy to make, and thus much better to impress people! She loved it...
How long does it take?
-45-60 mins, including preparation and baking time.
Will you tell me the recipe?
-If people leave nice comments, maybe :P
