Martha Mondays is back and instead of being a weekly affair, its now taking place monthly with the results shown on the first Monday of the month. Fancy joining us? Just head to Brette’s blog.
I had high hopes for this. I had never made buttercream with egg whites or with the addition of caramel and I was excited. I found the cake didn’t have much taste and kept checking to see if I should have added cocoa powder to the melted chocolate.
The buttercream for my taste had far too much butter. I don’t see the point in the egg whites either and have found normal buttercream to be more tasty and of a better consistency. Also, I could barely taste the caramel and ended up modifying it slightly with some powdered sugar and orange food colouring to make it a bit more exciting.
This cake wasn’t for us, but it has given me an idea for a Halloween cake which I will have to get on and make and then tell you about (if it works out okay of course!)
