Hey everyone! I hope all of you had fun celebrating Father’s Day! I know I sure did. My dad is a really hard person to shop for, so on Father’s day I make him his favorite- Chocolate cake with chocolate frosting. This year I used a recipe from Martha Stewart (And it was aaahhhh-mazing!)
The cake itself was really moist and chocolatey… but the frosting was my favorite part! Lots of cream and lots of chocolate! Unfortunately though, I had no clue how to make it dairy-free/vegan. : ( I really need to take some time to play around with different milk/cream substitutes and see which make the best/smoothest/thickest ganaches. If anyone has any idea’s, I’d greatly appreciate it!
This frosting was also a dream to frost- It was so thick and wasn’t melty at all.
I’m also getting better (at least I think so…) at photo taking. At least I’m spending more time on it. Usually I just snap a quick photo (often with my phone…) but now I’m getting out my camera, making sure the background isn’t too busy, and even taking things outside to get pics in the natural light! I’m also going crazy with piknik… I just love simple colored borders I guess.
Even little Pennjamin wanted a piece! (He even managed to get a few fingers full of frosting while we were taking this photo….)
And for one final photo.. Here’s a picture of me and the man himself- my dad! Now he can’t say I never got him anything!
