I didn't know there was a mix for them. A while back I made them from a copycat recipe I had and they were good.

Oh, the picture is upside down? I was going to ask why your Danish was stuck to the wall!

The Bitten Word: Thanksgiving 2011: Salted Caramel Six-Layer Chocolate Cake

hopefully the link works.
My bride loves a good chocolate layer cake. I don't know how to make one. So I thought I would give this a try. Never made a cake before today. Cakes seemed to have turned out OK, the caramel may just be a tad over cooked but still good and I didn't use all the frosting since neither of us likes a lot of frosting on a cake. The actual assembly was quite entertaining. Slicing a cake round in half was challenging, one even came out right. Since the halves aren't really even the slices wanted to slide around a bit on the soft caramel. A small assortment of bamboo skewers is holding the final product in a more or less vertical position. Will be trying it after dinner.

You did very good. Put the cake in the fridge and once the frosting get cold, the layers will stop sliding.

Working on my French bread extravaganza. I'm about ready to prepare loaves #7 and #8 of today's goal of 12. Looks like I set a reasonable challenge for myself.

Have been utilizing both my bread machines to do the kneading and to complete the first rise before I shape the loaves and set them to the final rise.

My only glitch is that I have only one baguette pan, but I've staggered things appropriately so that's not a problem. Just took a little while to establish my rhythm.

I'm havin' fun, have a great audio book playing and the house smells divine.

Worked a champ, thanks Addie
Did not get to the trying the cake until yesterday. I don't think we let it warm enough after taking it in from the travel trailer (convenient cool storage this time of year). It was good but not quite what we expected.
Since a six layer cake is a bit much for the two of us my bride took the cake to work, setting it up in 'public' area of the lunch room. She seems to think all it needed was to warm up a little more since there was constant stream of 'Oh wow' coming from the lunch room and many people making multiple trips to get 'just a little more cake'. We have a little more here at home for tonight so I'll find out how it is after warming up more.
Gosh, baking may be more enjoyable than cooking.

I need to translate the recipe into English. The site I got this from used to have English, but for some reason it is not there anymore. I'll try to do it quick, though I cannot promise, very busy nowadays.
