In my office, it's sacrilegious for a birthday to pass without birthday cake and an afternoon break - even if said birthday falls on a weekend. So this week, when we realized that the inconceivable had occurred, we booted out to Gleneagle Bakery to pick up some serious chocolaty goodness.
The prize? A white layered cake smothered in chocolate ganache, enfolded with shards of almonds and adorned with whipped cream and white chocolate curls. Sugar comas ensued of course, but it was a pretty sweet way to end the day!
Fluffy clouds of whipped cream and chocolate!
