Hey all! As I’ve been lurking here from time to time for bits of advice, I thought I’d share the blog I’ve been working on—baking one cake a week for 2013; mostly from the Cake Bible.

Here’s a link to the blog: cakeyear.tumblr.com

Below are pics of two of my favorites—a wedding cake version of the White Chocolate Whisper cake, and the chestnut sand cake with rose-water glaze and buttercream daffodils.

Those look great!  Baking through the Cake Bible is quite an achievement, best of luck!

What other flavors did you pair the chestnut cake with?  That’s one that not many people have made, but I know forum member Anne also loves that cake so it’s interesting that it’s one of your favorites as well smile

I submit that it’s intrinsically impossible to bake all the way through the Cake Bible in a human lifespan, since there are few complete cakes listed, only various components that must be mixed and matched to produce a complete cake. The number of permutations is enormous.

Hi, Tim!

Oooh, that Chestnut Sand is my all time favorite cake ever!!!  Frosted or unfrosted!

I think you could do frosting permutations to help express yourself through TCB.  Make a big batch of, say, mousseline, divide it, and add a proportionate amount of the different additions for each variation to each division and frost a bunch of cupcakes!!!

Enjoy! Hope you post more!
