We mentioned this Half Baked Harvest belleiciousness…
a few days ago…but thought we would share our success in the “test kitchen” with our “test audience” (as in family and friends who are happy to be brutally honest) over the holiday weekend.

One of our nearest and dearest had a recent birthday…and the birthday girl just wanted a casual night out with the gals. Since we believe in granting birthday wishes, that’s exactly what we did! But to make the celebration a tad more special, and because we have been dying to try to recreate this cake, we made this…
Chocolate Bourbon Caramel Macaron Cake from Half Baked Harvest. This blog is worth adding to your repertoire. Her recipes, photographs and writing ability will keep you interested and excited about cooking.
Our skills at cake decorating are nowhere nearly as advanced , but practice makes perfect, right?
The cake and its components are easy to put together. And it is worth every effort. This cake is moist, flavorful, chocolatey, and rich, yet not overly dense. It is going to be on repeat. Without. A. Doubt.
