Ok, I've been away for a short while! Tending to life . . .
Life has a way of stepping in and controlling the party. My husband and I have been traveling back and forth to Louisiana for some time now-helping my parents a bit! It has caused me to put some things on hold-but not everything. I've still in the kitchen trying and testing new ideas for Home At Last!
My latest fascination is with opera cakes and the picture I've shared is the inspiration behind my experimentation in the kitchen. The cake shown has wonderful layers of crispy shell, dense cake, creme layers, meringue, hazelnut creme and chocolate! Heavenly!
I've experimented and come up with a few layers that are definitely yummy and able to hold up in the five or so layers. Working on a meringue cake this week. I have a vision in my head and have to work it to the end!
