Happy Birthday, Son!

Hello Sweet Readers! No, I haven't fallen off the face of the Earth.  I haven't been baking much at all, but will be in the near future, so stay tuned!

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!
