But I sure love it!
I entered this in the local YMCA dessert contest. And it lost out to a Kahlua cake.
This cake was inspired by Garrett of Vanillagarlic. He made a chipolte cinnamon cupcake and I have been in love with the flavor combo ever since. Ive a made a savory tri-tip and a sweet truffle using these flavors. And now its my *new* favorite cake.
Its made with a cake mix but I added 1 teaspoon chipotle powder and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Then I frost it with cinnamon buttercream and a glaze of chocolate ganache. To decorate, I made a chocolate disk and used a chocolate transfer on top. I tried to use a snowflake design transfer sheet right on the ganache but it didn’t work at all! It just got all sticky on the transfer sheet and didn’t transfer ;(
Anyway, my favorite cake made an appearance at my Christmas dinner. There were lots of oohs and aah and “what is in this cake?” It was a hit at Christmas but its not winning any prizes. It lost to a Kahlua cake! And the humiliating thing- there were only 2 cakes!
I think the judges had to much Kahlua!
