Tuesdays With Dorie – Chocolate Caramel Chestnut Cake

What a pain!


The cake and the ganache came together great. It’s the assembly portion…it just killed me.

This is a call to action. DORIE – DO NOT MAKE US CUT OUR CAKES INTO THREE HORIZONTAL SLICES. This is not a thing that keeps cakes intact. It crumbles them and destroys them.

Also, my ganache didn’t spread.

Also, I’m a whiny old man.

I was so grumpy tonight that I decided to skip the glaze. I’m glad that I did, as the whole thing was so overwhelmingly chocolatey and sweet with the ganache that a chocolate glaze would have killed it for me.

Chestnuts are gross.

In conclusion, fart.

  1. let me just say i give you props for even making it. i would totally skip it if someone hadnt sent me a can of the chestnut spread. now, i feel like i have to make it. so good job dude. you gave it a go. 🙂

  2. I love the socks in the background! 😀 I actually liked this one. Sorry it was a “fart” for you.

  3. It gives me immense pleasure that I’m not the only sourpuss doing TWD. All these chirpy ‘Good job!’s are starting to make me feel like I missed the kool-aid pass-out.

  4. Well, at least you tried, which is more than I did or will do this month. Maybe the next recipe you try will be fart free.
