It’s a cake! (No lie)

The most recent of my baking (literally — I only finished assembling it about a half an hour ago) is this cake that I made for my husband’s birthday. (Recipe found here.)

First thing this morning, while waiting to walk the girl to the bus, I did my mise en place so that everything would be ready. Then, of course, I went off and did other things so the butter could soften and the eggs warm to room temperature.

Everything’s ready to go!

Then I baked it. I had some problems with the caramel sauce (it had solidified before I started to assemble the cake), but I added a little more butter and some cream, then heated gently until it was a nice smooth consistency. Voilà!
