I’m really happy when someone requests for a chocolate cake. And Jane did just that for her 17th birthday this year.
I knew exactly which cake to bake for her. It was one of those…never baked before but looks extremely good from the recipe and have been bookmarked for ages…kind of cake. Not surprisingly, this cake is one of Pierre Herme’s – the Autumn Meringue Cake. This cake was described as a simple cake that “tantalises, satisfies, and delights your five senses” in Pierre Herme’s cookbook and I’ve no doubt that this cake did just that.
