At 2:48am this morning I woke up with a nagging feeling that there was something I was supposed to do today. Mentally I went over the to-do list I had made before I went to bed and it seemed completely. Then all of a sudden it hit me. Today is the 20th, reveal day for the Cake Slice Bakers!
I’ve been out of the loop for awhile and for some reason I was focusing on it being the 21st. Needless to say that the first thing I did this morning was to get my cake ready. Luckily I had everything that was needed on hand.
We are currently baking from Carole Walter’s Great Cakes and our selection this month is Espresso Cake with Hot Kahlua Syrup. I know, just let that sink in for a minute. And speaking of sinking in; this cake is soaked in the Hot Kahlua Syrup. One of the most fun moments was hearing the syrup seep into the cake as I poured it on. Or maybe it was the voices in my head who knows!!!!
I decided to add a ganache glaze as suggested by the author and I’m glad I did. The coffee taste is very prominent so if coffee is your thing you’re going to love this one. I like the cake but I wasn’t blown away by it. Check out the other entries from my fellow bakers and see what they think of it.
