We closed on our very first house yesterday and my mom is in town to visit, so I barely have time to post that I even completed the February Daring Bakers’ challenge. This is another month where I’m SO glad I baked early! Let’s get the blog-checking text out of the way:
The February 2009 challenge is hosted by Wendy of WMPE’s blog and Dharm of Dad ~ Baker & Chef. We have chosen a Chocolate Valentino cake by Chef Wan; a Vanilla Ice Cream recipe from Dharm and a Vanilla Ice Cream recipe from Wendy as the challenge.
Here are the results (sans ice cream – I’m waiting for my Cuisinart ice cream maker):
I actually baked the cake for Valentine’s Day. (When else is a heart-shaped chocolate cake more appropriate?) It came together with only three ingredients and a mixer in mere minutes… It was easy *and* delicious.
Check out Dharm’s blog if you’re interested in the recipe!
