Happy Birthday, Son!
I did get to bake last week, though. It was my son's 10th birthday last Friday and I made him this dark chocolate three layer birthday cake. He has a loose theme from "How to Train Your Dragon", so I asked him to draw Toothless so I could attempt a hand cut out of the dragon with chocolate fondant. He was very pleased. It's rough, but he's a 10 year old who is easy to please in this way.
The cake was filled with raspberry puree sauce and delicious ganache. It was enjoyed by all. Personally, I could have had it a bit moister, but then, I am the one who is just a tad picky about my desserts.
Thanks for stopping by!
