Happy Birthday to an Amazing Sister!



This last week my sister Shelley celebrated a big birthday. One that ended in a zero!!! (To protect the innocent we won't reveal which birthday it was besides the fact that she's my younger sister it would just make me seem older.) I had the opportunity to try making a new cake. The cake was 8 inch round chocolate fudge layers and I split the layers and frosted in between them. So it was 4 layers of chocolate and frosting. Then I frosted the outside and poured chocolate ganache all over the cake. The top is the chocolate play dough flowers in Shelley's favorite color purple. I've never attempted the whole chocolate ganache thing and I think it turned out pretty cute, not to mention delicious! Hope you had a wonderful day Shelley! Love you tons!

Yep she didn't save me a piece either :( My birthday is in May so feel free to use me as "project". Anything with chocolate or cream cheese is a good thing :)

I think that you must be Myrna Larsons grand daughter with these darling cakes. I remember sitting and watching her do her beautiful work. Love her.
