Last month, we celebrated Andy’s birthday! I must admit that I wasn’t up for planning a big event, right after the wedding. So we just invited a bunch of friends over for pizza and beer.
Chocolate and peanut butter is one of his favorite flavor combinations, and a few years ago I found the perfect cake recipe from Smitten Kitchen. I mean, just look at those photos. It’s like a gourmet reese’s peanut butter cup!
So for the big 2-7 I decided to whip it up again. With the help of his super cute cousin, Annie, it came out pretty well! I’m still not very good at frosting cakes, but the chocolate glaze covers up all the imperfections. The cake is super duper rich. I mean, intense. So you only need a very small sliver. But that didn’t keep me from eating up all the leftovers. Oh well.
