Whipped up dessert tonight, large maple syrup heart shaped pancake topped with Chantilly cream, heart shaped strawberries and drizzled with maple syrup. Made with love for our favourite game.
Now I present you my creation of a heart cake!
I know, it's not the prettiest one. Honestly it's only the little rest of another cake. I thought, that I can kill two birds with one stone, but now -you can see it- it looks puny.
Nevertheless, it 's a nut cake and baked with a lot of love
It was only yesterday, when my husband told me about this contest. Well... since baking is my hobby and I almost create cookies and stuff every second day, I was like: "OK, little short time to go, but: Challange accepted! Which cake do you want?"
As expected, he answered: "Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte" (you might say "Black Forest cake" - it's a cherry cake with dark sponge cake layers, cream and - for the adult version - cherry brandy)
Fun fact: I have baking moulds, muffin trays, cookie cutters etc. in nearly every size and shape - except in a HEART shape
So the cherries had to do the "heart-shaping-job".
In my defence I'd like to add: I created this version of a SCHWARZWÄLDER KIRSCHTORTE in a minimum of time, so the layers haven't had enough time in the fridge, as you can see from the result...
Hope the self-made chocolate otter can make up the look little bit.
