I only uploaded one pic of this wonderful birthday cake, because it was almost a disaster. Weeks ago, I had decided that I wanted this recipe from Aimee over at Twigg Studios to be my birthday cake, but you see we hadn’t really planned it out for perfect. I’ll admit to being in the middle of melting white chocolate before I realized we didn’t have enough. I’ll admit to having two 8 in round cake pans for the cheesecake layer and one 9 in spring form pan for the cake layers. I’ll admit to not being the perfect baker. Love and I had agreed to make this cake, because it incorporated everything I love into one delicious cake and what more could a person ask for on their birthday? I guess I could have asked for it to look as outstanding as Aimee’s, but I didn’t want to ask for too much. ha ha!
In the end though, I couldn’t have asked for a better cake. Love and I worked together to complete it although I’ll admit that he did most of the work. It was for my birthday after all. We stuck it out through many mishaps that had me wanting to pull my hair out. I sent Love to the store twice for ingredients we were lacking. First we needed more white chocolate, whipping cream, and mascapone then later for new spring form pans. He could only find 10 in springform pans, which would have made this an even more daunting task. As it was, we worked it out by cutting off the extra inch of cake to make it fit to the cheesecake and built the layers very carefully. We won’t talk about how lopsided it was at first.
The truth is folks that I’ll be able to laugh at the endeavor of trying to make this cake to perfection every year from here on out. I’ll have a memory of building something with the Love of my life that would in the end taste delicious. Here’s to more adventures in the years to come!
