Wow it's already been a month since our last cake. This year seems to be flying past and I don't have the time to do half the things that I want to or need to do. I normally bake each months cake just as soon as I can - one to get it out of the way and two because I am excited to see what it tastes like. Well this one I wasn't excited about - other than the Kahlua that is always exciting. We aren't coffee people expect for the mentioned Kahlua - but then I have my own recipe for that so it's just special.
I have rarely said something was awful or terrible I try to be nice but this one was. The coffee flavor is very strong and the rest of the flavors just didn't come together for me. I made the cake, did the hot syrup and even made the chocolate ganache it still wasn't happening. I'm not sure what happened but it's not one that I will make again and the remaining will go to the chickens.
At least it looks pretty. Now go check out how my fellow bakers liked there cakes.
