Ronny turns 34!



Ronny turned 34 this month. As always I told him I would make him whatever cake he wanted for his birthday. Little did I know he would pick one that would be 1. so expensive to make, and 2. so time intensive. This little number literally took all day to make. Now that I have made it once I know how I would speed things up if I ever attempt to make it again. This is a bittersweet triple chocolate genoise, wrapped in chocolate praline sheets. Ours boys have not yet acquired the taste for dark chocolate so Charley, Ron, and I enjoyed the vast majority of this cake. Thankfully we had some friends over the next day to watch the BYU game who like dark chocolate and helped to finish the cake off. Ronny had a great day and we had lots of fun singing to him and showering him with love!

That is an amazing cake! I hope there was a lot of milk on hand--that would have made for one big slice of heaven after another. Yay, Denise, for creating such amazing cakes.

Whoa. I feel like such a loser for letting out a cheer every time my kids request "the chocolate cake from Costco" for the birthdays! Congratulations Ronny--you are getting mighty old, my friend!
