Going 17.....

This is a long overdue entry that was suppose to up a month ago, but life got in the way. Now, I'm back! This was taken during my little brother's birthday (well...now he's not so little any more he is way taller than me!), since he hates having is photo taken and shown to other people, I opted to cut him off the picture and center on his cake. More often than not, when we think of birthday cakes, we tend to think of a tall sponge encased in a rich fluffy buttercream frosting. Since this his more special birthday because he's now a college student I thought of combining 2 of his favorite flavors, peanut butter and chocolate. For this I pulled out Tish Boyle's The Cake Book I chosed her Bitter Chocolate Peanut Butter Mousse, it taste so smooth and silky hmmm...
The bottom crust is composed of butter and crushed chocolate wafer cookies, layered with a peanut butter-cream cheese filling and on top of that a generous amount of bitter chocolate mousse. Its supposed to be finished off with another thin layer of chocolate gananche but I opted not too, for chocaholic like me that is very rare that I skip a step that deals with chocolate. Its THAT RICH! This is definitely a recipe that I would so again. Its easy and taste good what more can we wasked for right?


I'm a nine to five pencil pusher who loves to play with flour and paper during my free time. Dreams of going to Europe and eat croissants and make pastries all day long!
