I'm on vacation right now and I realized today is the posting date!
This months challenge was an Opera cake. Something I've wanted to make for a long time now. I really didn't think I'd get to make this challenge, seeing as how there were so many ingredients, and most of them were expensive.
Looking though my pantry one day, I realized I had enough ingredients to make 1/4 of the recipe! So, I used what I had, and made one, cute little cake!
I used pecans for the cake, and my favorite ceamcheese butter cream.
I didn't have anything for a glaze or mousse so I ended up making some strange orange/cream cheese curd-jello-thing, then whipped it up after setting it in the fridge.
I want to try making this cake again when I can do the flavors I want!
I apologize for the sloppy post! Blogging is not easy to do on vacation! ;-)
