That cake is gorgeous. Tell us how you like it.
We have it at a different member's house every month - though we're thinking of changing it to every other month, since we're all involved in a lot of activities and it's sometimes difficult to work out schedules. The couple hosting it choose the theme and make the main meal. Other couples are assigned various courses, which rotate at every get together: appetizers, first course, and dessert. Plus everyone brings a beverage, usually wine or beer, to pair with their assigned course.
Everyone was complimentary about the cake, though if I'm being honest, I thought it was a tad dry. But I've found the same thing with other flourless cakes (or mostly flourless, in this case). If I make it again, I would probably bake it for just a little less time to see if it would retain more of the moisture. The flavor was good overall and the ganache icing really stole the show.
