Happy Birthday Amiable!!!
Yesterday, my sister and best friend Amy (whom I call Amiable) turned 24!!!
She has been in Reno for the past few days celebrating with her boyfriend. While they were away (they come home today) I took care of their cats. By "took care" I mean refilling their water bowl once a day, super difficult. ;)
I figured I'd bake her up a cake and leave it in her fridge as a surprise when she gets home.
She is in LOVE with my peanut butter frosting so I knew right away I would be incorporating that into her cake.
I decided on a Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge cake....YUMMY.
You see, she and I both inherited the Chocolate gene from my parents so naturally chocolate fudge cake won over any other flavor and it goes perfectly with the peanut butter.
The cake is 4 layers with peanut butter buttercream filling.
It is covered in milk chocolate ganache and topped with a few swirls of the peanut butter buttercream.
I'm pretty sure I will paying her a visit tonight so that I can have a slice myself - I wouldn't want her to have to eat this whole thing by herself. What kind of older sister would I be if I did that?
I slipped the cake into her fridge on the top shelf with a little message.
Happy Birthday Amiable!
I love you!
