What are you baking these days? May 2011 [old]

buttertart | | May 1, 2011 05:14 PM

How is everybody doing on this pleasant May evening? Did you bake up a storm this weekend or just take it easy? I'm in the process of confecting my husband's birthday cake - a word was put in for one I made a couple of years ago, chestnut layers with chestnut and walnut meringue layers and chestnut buttercream. The last time I used Ruth Levy Beranbaum's chestnut sand cake layers from her "Cake Bible" (and her chestnut buttercream), this time I'm making her chestnut génoise and a Cognac soak. The meringue layers are from Alice Medrich's "Pure Dessert". This time I'm going to make a whipped ganache icing and chestnut cream between the layers. Hope it works out. So, how about you? What are you baking these days?
