This week's Heavenly Cake challenge was a simple cake but it brought with it plenty of possibilities. The cake itself was a simple white cake that was not very flavorful but had a great crumb and a sturdy structure. I am sure that I will use this cake as a base for other cakes in the future. The chocolate frosting was simple to prepare and had a great shine to it. I didn't have milk chocolate so I used double chocolate chips instead and this too tasted great. I didn't mind the stronger chocolate flavor that Rose was trying to avoid. I also loved the slow lava-like swoopiness of this frosting. It spoke to my deep admiration for all things creamy and dreamy. All in all the taste and textures were very good.
I have to admit that I am still not use to Rose's batter assemblies. I agree that they produce wonderful textures but I still feel like I haven't read the instructions correctly. If you are a Rose newbie, push past the strange steps and welcome to the world of cakes with great structure.
