My sister and I made all of this last Sunday. Chunky Mocha Cookies, Fudgy Saucepan Brownies, and Hummingbird Cupcakes. (I bet the last one looks familiar, huh?) We wanted to continue baking, but we ran out of flour and sugar. So sad.
My friend and I made this cake on Friday. We named it the "Chocolate Avalanche Cake" because it turned out to be a bit messier than we had planned. The first of our troubles began when the cakes cracked into three pieces as a result of the doming. But, nevertheless, the cake was SO good! The recipes for the cake, caramel pastry cream, and the white chocolate glaze are in the King Arthur Flour Baker's Companion Cookbook. Now, I love this cookbook; it is amazing. Some teenage girls are on Team Edward. I am a proud member of Team King Arthur.
The final results of our baking day. Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies and the Chocolate Avalanche Cake, which was quite difficult to cut. The cookies were good, too!
I wonder how much flour we used this week . . .
