I always thought it would be great to bake three or four of Rose’s cakes at the same time, say, her chocolate cakes and serve them as a tasting menus to friends to see how people respond when tasting one against the other.

Has anyone every done this?

Hi Shokat, I did this on a very limited basis the other week, but there were only three of us and two cakes.  I made the Chocolate Domingo and the Perfect All-American Chocolate torte both from TCB.  The domingo had powdered sugar on top and the PAAC I glazed with ganache, so it wasn’t a completely equal contest.  So, one person liked the PAAC (thought it was denser), I liked the Domingo (thought it was moister), and the third person couldn’t tell the difference between the two.  It would have been great to have a third or fourth cake in the mix, though.  Let us know the outcome if you decide to do this!
