I started with the red velvet cake recipe (just like I made for Alyssa- same frosting and all from http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Red-Velvet-Cake-IV/Detail.aspx
Once the cake was baked I popped it out of the pan and chilled it in the fridge.
P.S. You will have to drink all the White Wine in your fridge to make room for all this madness!
I cut the cake in half and filled with a generous layer of the white chocolate cream cheese frosting.
In the mean time, what to do with this mess that didn't come out of the pan so nicely!
I crumb it up and mix in some frosting so that I can roll it into balls for some cake truffles.
Once they are chilled I dip them in some white chocolate (8 oz.) and (2 tbsp.) shortening to make it easier for dipping.
I cut the cold cake into small petit four size/shape mini cakes and then, you guessed, back into the fridge.
I mix up some easy glaze to seal in all the yummyness! http://www.ehow.com/how_4489842_make-petit-fours.html
Then I started pouring the glaze over each one. The rack is over a pan so that I can use the glaze that runs off each one to glaze the next.
Then I melt some chocolate to fancify the petit fours. They need a little something and the cake truffles came out so funky they needed a cover up!
The Final Petit Fours-so yummy I can't resist.
Finally, everything comes together for the birthday boy!
I don't know when I will ever try this again! But, it was fun and ended deliciously. I just have to say that you need almost a whole day to make these petit fours happen. Let me know what you think!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAVID!!!!!
