Today I made a cake for hubby's birthday. His birthday was actually yesterday, but since I had the day off today, and the kids were at school, we celebrated today. It was a good thing, too, because I don't know how I would have made this cake with the kids around. I think the cake turned out pretty good, however, the dark chocolate was a bit too dark for my liking. I got the recipe from Smitten Kitchen. You can see it here: http://smittenkitchen.com/2008/06/pistachio-petit-four-cake/ It was different than other cakes I have made. It was a three layer cake with ground pistachios in the batter, and between each layer was apricot preserves, marizpan and chocolate ganache.
