LPBeier - Got that frosting recipe? Looking forward to trying it based on your recommendations!
Still working on the syrup to brush the Genoise, but hopefully more progress will be made this upcoming weekend.
We decided on a three tier cake, and purchased 12" and 6" pans to accompany the 9" pans we own.
I'm also excited that Whole Foods is now carrying El Rey chocolate again. Political issues in Venezuela spilled over into the chocolate realm and WF was unable to procure this amazing product. While they carried the popular Valrhona, I think the "Big V" is an inferior product even to common-place Ghirardelli (or Scharffen Berger for that matter!). We bought a couple pounds of El Rey to practice recipes with.
