chocolate buttercream, double chocolate cake, sour cream almond cake, swiss, Swiss Meringue Buttercream
It’s been a busy couple of months for me with kids, sports, school winding down, etc. I did get to make a first communion cake for my good friend, Kerry, who’s son was making his first communion this Spring. He asked for a chocolate and vanilla layer cake with chocolate buttercream filling. The outside is frosted with vanilla-bean Swiss meringue buttercream and decorated with little royal icing crosses I piped onto parchment paper and let dry overnight. The color theme was white-on-white and favors were cross-shaped sugar cookies (see the next post) put in bags decorated with swirls and curlycues, so I carried that theme over to the cake.
It was a fun one to make and such an honor to do it….Congrats on your Holy First Communion, Nicholas!
