Trick or Treat! As we all know Halloween is a time for tricks and treats, but this boo-tifulhalloweencake recipe
is all treat, no trick. With the month of October coming to an end and Halloween is tomorrow, this resulted to last minute baking. Honestly I have been so busy with my kids, school, household and making my daughter’s Halloween costume and once again, I still don’t know how she convinced me. Last night I realized I had no dessert planned for Halloween and started to have a panic attack (I like to plan ahead of time). I decided to see what I had in my pantry and fridge and with eggs, flour, cocoa, chocolate and whipped cream I came up with boo-tifulhalloweencake .
I made a vanilla and chocolate cake baked layer by layer
and covered it in chocolate ganache.
Using melted chocolate I piped around the cake
I know it would have been more convenient picking up a cake from my local bakery but by putting something together from scratch (limited time) and making it look and taste more unusual is a big success in my book.
Homemade, of whatever degree, goes over best when it looks homemade. All it takes is a simple personal touch.
