Father's Day Cake

One of my favorite websites to visit is Tasty Kitchen. It's this great forum for people to search for and post recipes to share with everyone. It's an extension of The Pioneer Woman's website. I love her. I think she is genius. She is part of what makes my life complete.

I visit every day and tuck peoples recipes into my personal 'recipes to try' box. I'm amazed at how many superb cooks there are, and how many of them are so good at photography as well! Tasty Kitchen truly inspires me to cook for fun as well as helps me come up with new dishes to try for dinner.
I know. A total mouthful of a name. I'm just going to call it 'Father's Day Cake' since that's what I made it for. I spread the cooking over two days so it wasn't too overwhelming. Everyone thought it was yummy. I even liked the frosting quite a bit more than a regular buttercream. And there is no denying that it's a beautiful cake to serve!

Here's a look at the inside: cake layered with raspberry curd and chocolate ganache. Raspberry & chocolate are one of natures perfect combinations!

This wasn't even all that difficult a cake to make--it's just a whole lot easier to spread it out over two days, and a whole lot easier to cut and frost a frozen cake!

So, check out Tasty Kitchen--you will be glad you did, either for the recipes or the fabulous looking food photography!

Holy cow! How could you even stand eating that? It's so very pretty! Of course, how could you stand to NOT eat it, either? Mmm. I want to lick my screen.

You're my hero!!!

It was my daughter's birthday on Father's Day, so Darrin graciously bowed out of the day. Leah chose "spaghetti". Oh, goody. It wasn't actually spaghetti, but pasta with alfredo sauce, to which I added fresh basil and sauteed mushrooms and chicken. At least there was that . . . LOL

Wish I was the Father in your house and my family would make me a lusious cake like that one. My hats off to you.
