Basically, Mike made a gluten-free chocolate cake. The cake smelled great, looked great in the pan but he did not let it cool before knocking it out of the pan. Long story short, he improvised and salvaged our dessert. This dessert was made for the same friend who’s power went out and we invited over. Check out my post called ‘Bro, Do You Even Cook’ to see what our main course was!
What you see in the photo here is our dessert lined up and ready to serve. In each glass is (starting from bottom to top) a layer of ‘chocolate cake/brownie mistake’ – 2nd layer is vanilla bean ice cream and to top it off I whipped up a quick salted caramel sauce and drizzled it over top.
Thanks to Mike’s quick thinking dessert was saved!
Yes, I realize I’ve fallen off the track and haven’t posted anything about food in a very long time. So, here we are!
My friend Mercedes came over one night and we baked up a storm!
We also wrapped Mike in garland and wore ugly Christmas sweaters. Needless to say we know how to make a long night of baking into quite the event.
In the bottom left photo we have: Milk chocolate and white chocolate swirl almond candy-cane bark.
In the bottom right photo: ginger snap cookies and festively-shaped red velvet cakes with cream cheese icing.
We also baked candy cane shortbread cookies and a few pie crusts to fill with deliciousness later on. A few days later I made an apple pie as well.
I hope everyone is enjoying the season and getting excited for Christmas day! T-minus 8 days ’til we can open presents!
