The Sweetest Week Ever- Cakes

March 9, 2008

The Whopper.  The Red Velvet Whopper is a three layer red velvet cake with brown sugar cream cheese frosting.  The sides are decorated with dried red velvet cake crumbs and royal blue dots.  She’s a beauty.  But this post isn’ really about the Whopper, it’s about all of the beautiful cakes in blog land this week.  Here are a few of my favorites!

 Amanda of Slow Like Honey made a Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake with Peanut Butter Cups on the inside and outside.  It’s outta control.  I think it might be criminal.  Amanda’s got a great site, fun pictures, and she loves Fionna Apple as much as I do.

Gigi of Gigi Cakes made a Banana Dunce De Leche Cake!  Think banana bread with deliciously sweet caramel and mascarpone icing.  It’s inspired!  Gigi’s is one of my favorite sites, her treats are always perfectly gorgeous! 

Deeba of Passionate About Baking created a Chocolate Orange Almond Gateau!  Her cake decoration style is very unique, and just a delight!  She posts everyday and always has great stories about her adventures in the kitchen feeding her kiddies. 

It’s been another sweet week!  Now get in that kitchen and make some cakes!
