Thank you so much!!  It was a great day.  I did of course, end up baking my own birthday cake.  My last 3 cakes I took to various occasions was the Chocolate Caramel Ganache, my new favorite chocolate cake and DEFINITELY my new favorite ganache!  But for my birthday, I made Bobby Flay’s coconut cake.  I use it as posted but add more powdered sugar to the buttercream and a whole bag of toasted coconut! 

Not sure how many cakes this year; work takes away time for baking, but does provide an eager cake eating audience!  So far this year I’ve taken a lemon meringue pie, chocolate caramel ganache, lemon luxury cake, grand marnier cake (TCB), and the BF coconut cake.  I think german chocolate is next, deciding between the one in RHC and the one in Baked…may have to try both! : )

I’m going to have to definitely make that chocolate caramel ganache cake.  Can’t wait to hear about the German Chocolate.  I’d love to know your opinion on Rose’s vs. Baked—those Baked guys are no slouches, and their recipe is so different, I’m curious as well!!!

I hope you had a great day!!!
