I’m bookending the week with baking. Simple, moist two-layer chocolate cake with a sandwiched filling of dark chocolate ganache and homemade salted caramel, all held together by whipped chocolate buttercream. There’s something very comforting to me about baking a cake and setting it on a cake stand. Maybe it’s my childhood memories of watching the 1988 “New Adventures of Pippi Longstocking” or how my grandma always baked her two famous desserts every Thanksgiving and Christmas and set them out to view before the meal began. There’s so much pleasure to be had in a clean table set with cake. What’s your favorite dessert that sparks a childhood memory to you? Happy weekend, friends! Also, here are the highly-anticipated pictures of the cake, cut. (Tell me I’m not the only one who likes to see the cake cut?! Hehe.) Enjoy!!
