The flavor idea came to me in the middle of traffic, so I had to do an illegal u-turn and almost take out a bird to make my way to the grocery store to pick up the supplies. From the start this cake was nothing but trouble. Since it was last minute, I didn’t have my butter soften so I had to improvise and then I kept dropping yolk in my egg whites. After almost pulling out all my hair (and this is really expensive hair…LOL) I decided to just mix everything together and shove it in the oven.
30 minutes and 350 degrees later I had a yummy moist banana cake. I filled the cake layers with a banana buttercream with chunks of bananas. Then I slathered it all up with some delicious semi-sweet ganache frosting. The cake came out so delicious and the BF was surprised and happy. We each ate (some people being better than others…NOT ME!!) a piece of cake and he took the rest with him to work to share with his co-workers
I use to struggle with trying to create cakes that would make the Cake Boss proud, but I realized for me, I would rather see someone smile, because they love the way my cake taste, verus how pretty is it. Maybe that is strange logic, but I am strange and from this day forward, I have vowed to put my efforts into creating the best tasting cakes I can. This means, not beating myself up anymore, because I can't make a stupid fondant rose or create perfect little hand piped decorations. My creations will be just as fun, yummy and whimisical as I am!
NOTE - Please be aware that no birds were actually injured in the making of this cake!!
