I started "practicing" tonight for my cake entry into Southern Living's White Cake Contest in December. I have in mind what I want to make as my entry but I couldn't find the ingredients for it today. So, this is what came in 2nd place as a practice cake tonight: Chocolate Cake with Cream Cheese Toffee Icing
It's made (with the exception of the chocolates on top) entirely from scratch and it looks great (I think) but I have no idea how it tastes! LOL Right now, it's just 'eye candy'. Tomorrow, I shall have to take a small taste to see if any adjustments need to be made to the batter, to the icing, etc....but only a small taste!
For now, into the refrigerator it goes and I'll have visions of beautiful cake creations dancing around in my dreams........sigh......
UPDATE: Tasted it and holy cow was it good!!! But since I don't want to LOOK like a Holy Cow, we'll just leave it at that...at taste. :D
