I think most of my blog posts are either food or art related, but I love both so it only makes sense, right? A few weeks ago Matt and his wife, Ayumi, were kind enough to host a Thanksgiving dinner at their house. Ayumi’s birthday was two days after the event, so Matt asked me to bake a birthday cake for her. I happily accepted because I enjoy making desserts, and I have made cakes in the past. American cakes are very different than Japanese cakes. Usually American cakes are sweeter and more rich in flavor/texture.This cake wasn’t the prettiest cake I have made, but it was pretty delicious! It made me happy to see everyone eating it and enjoying it, especially Ayumi.
It was a chocolate cake with a cream cheese peanut butter frosting and topped with chocolate ganache!
