Every year I make my kid a custom cake and this year is no different. I wish I had photos of the two hot wheels cars and the bob the builder construction site I made early on they were cool but here are a couple. I am no baker but I have fun doing it and its all first draft stuff so if the frosting doesnt do what I expected I just have to go with it.. This is a flourless cake made with beaten eggwhites, melted chocolate, vanilla and unsweetened butter it comes out of the oven puffy and light like a souffle but then as it sits it collapses and gets more dense while retaining a nice moist and chocolatey center. I like it both straight from the oven and also later after it gets dense.
So happy birthday to everyone and anyone who has a birthday in April, you know who you are better than I do even though I do know some.
