This week has been filled with yummy food, board games, video games, audio book listening, and baking! It's been a good week! These are at the top of my current obsessions this week:
Cadbury Creme Egg Cake
Every year Adam and I make birthday cake requests for each other. Then we have to somehow make that cake. I've requested a s'mores cake, a Passion Flake cake, a lemon-blueberry cake, and a pink lemonade cake. Adam's requested a chocolate bar cake, a mint cake, a lime cake, and this year he requested a Cadbury Creme Egg cake.
Surprisingly there weren't many recipes online for such a thing. There were a lot of cupcakes and cheesecakes but nothing stood out so I saved a picture of a cake I found for inspiration and then manipulated it to what my brain was picturing.
This is my finished cake:
Under the top chocolate frosting layer, I poked holes in the cake and poured a bit of sweetened condensed milk and caramel sauce down inside. This left the cake super moist. I'm quite proud with how this cake turned out.
The Final Empire - Mistborn #1
A couple of IGGPPC staff members were discussing The Mistborn series a while back. About how amazing these books were and how they were obsessed with the author, Brandon Sanderson. So I decided to give them a try. I needed a break from the YA books I was reading. Oh man, I wasn't prepared for the audio book I picked up. I ended up listening to the graphic audio book for the first book in the series. So basically the audio book is recorded like a movie. Every character is narrated by a different actor and there's sound effects and music. It was like listening to a movie. I LOVED it. The voice actors were great. And the story was incredibly interesting and it sucked me into their world. I'm excited to move onto the next book in the series.
What are you loving this week?
