Yeah, well, I guess my cakes have been improving, so I'm just going to keep plugging at it. I am determined to make this birthday cake perfect. All of the components are there; I just have to put them together with extreme care and fastidiousness. I was just thinking though, how do you guys feel about hot fudge sauce as a topping for individual slices of cake? Do you think that would be a good idea, or should I just keep it simple and serve the cake as is?

By the way, has anyone noticed that cakes always taste way better the next day? Why is that?

You're doing the 'flourless choc. cake'? And the frosting? Instead of hot fudge sauce, why not some Calvados whipped cream, since you've got that in the cake already?

I'm with marmalady on the "dressing". Another suggestion would be to garnish with sliced kiwi and/or strawberries.

Ahh, but I originally said "I think I will fill it with a calvados diplomat pastry creme", and then she said "why not some Calvados whipped cream, since you've got that in the cake already?" which proves that she made the original mistake, not me! :twisted:
