This past weekend I was busy with Mother's Day cake orders and I wasn't planning on making this cake until...
I read all the rave reviews from other Heavenly Cake Bakers about how DELICIOUS this cake was and also how quick and easy it was to make. You see, when I glanced at the upcoming month list of cakes, I had already made a mental note of a couple that I was planning to make and especially the free choice at the end of May. But I quickly made new plans and so last night in between baking cakes for today's orders, I made this FANTASTIC cake.
And because I always have to be a little creative, I curved the decorations from the fork dragging technique to create a "wave-like" look, but I did follow the directions to have more straight lines on the other cake.
Did the taste live up to all the hype?? Oh yes. It is DELICIOUS!! It's sweet, but not overly sweet and has the perfect amount of almond and vanilla flavors and a subtle taste of salt to balance everything out. One of the cakes is half eaten and I can neither confirm nor deny if that was from going back again and again, only for "just another small taste."
