I am SO behind on my blogging. I made this weeks ago and I'm just now getting around to posting about it!
Nearly two years ago I found this recipe and knew it was destined to become a favorite of Bobby's. It is delicious! I saw it on Martha Stewart's show. I made them for a cooking club I hosted at my house and they were a big hit. Here's a picture of Beckie, Erin and I that night. (We all showed up wearing green.) You can see what they are supposed to look like in the bottom left corner of the picture. It's a recipe that makes six individual cakes and they are lovely! I was successful in forming the cakes the first time, but this time I could not get the stupid parchment paper to tape together, which is how you create the molds. I had a great idea- and thank goodness for that because I was at risk of becoming darn near apoplectic- how about a trifle!
It worked out very well. Unfortunately I had to serve the trifle in a souffle dish because I could not locate my trifle dish. That made me crazy and now I'll probably do the whole thing over again now that I've found my trifle dish because I want to see how pretty this dessert looks in the proper serving dish. I'm crazy like that.
