Anatomy of a Dinner Party: a day in the life of a hospitalityaholic

Cake Quiz!

Written by Patti on March 30th, 2011

Good Morning Darlings!

Although my birthday was in February, my dear friends over at Cake Hag have been trying to get my birthday cake to me.

I got it this weekend. The only stipulation? I had to guess what the cake was filled with.

Eric and I set about our task with glee. This is fun work. Maggie and Katie did divulge that under the chocolate shavings was a brown sugar frosting. Yum!

Here is the cake in it's entirety. With sides of champagne for good measure.

I almost hated cutting into it – it was so pretty. But, we must guess the filling. It’s a tough job, but someone has to do it!

Ready to taste.

Yum! Buttery cake with a filling that was part chocolate, part fruity? Hmmm…was it maraschino cherries? Figs?

No, it was a blood orange sangria marmalade with a chocolate ganache. A delicious and very grown-up version of the perfect birthday cake.

A million thanks to Maggie and Katie! I loved celebrating my birthday all over again!

xoxo, Patti
