Hi, I’m new to the forum, and I’m finding myself in a bit of an emergency. I signed up hoping for some guidance.
A bit of background: I’ve been baking all life and specifically baking using Rose’s recipes for about a year now. I found her book through the Original Hawaiian Chocolate website (I had to find the original chocolate oblivion torte recipe (: ). I do reasonably well but I wouldn’t consider myself anything other than a novice.
My brother got married rather suddenly last Christmas at a courthouse. He’s been worried about us accepting her and recently extracted a promise from me to make her a belated birthday cake when they come to our family’s big beach get together. Due to various reasons, his wife has not yet had her big princess day. They had a date but it keeps getting put off. Mom came up with the idea of throwing a small party for them at the beach as a surprise.
Hence a small birthday cake has suddenly become a wedding cake, not a huge cake but it has to have that feel, you know?
I have to keep it simple, but what they like is peanut butter and chocolate. I have the recipe for the peanut butter-cream, but what about an actual peanut butter flavored cake? His favorite candy has always been Reices Cups, I wanted to do peanut butter inside, chocolate outside.
