Dad's Birthday

I've been neglecting to write this up for a while, but here it is! Over thanksgiving, Dad was here and Papa planned a surprise cake for him. It was all worked out that I was making a cake for someone else the day after thanksgiving (completed with Nan's grumbling about me using the kitchen) and he completely missed it. I finished the cake late the night before and left it on the counter and he still didn't see it. It was nice to actually surprise my father.

Cake, Cake, Cake...This one is a 9 inch, four layer white cake with mocha buttercream between each layer, frosted also, and topped with a delicate layer of chocolate ganache. It's my favorite style of cake.

It's been a long time since I've baked, and it was fun. Here are the pictures:

Cheers to more cake!
