My good and dear friend Tammy (of Tammy’s Tastings, and if you’re anywhere Ann Arbor Michigan, you should check her out and have her do a chocolate or wine tasting for your friends; and if you’re not, she ships her DARNED TASTY CHOCOLATES all over, just sayin’) is having a birthday today (er, yesterday – but I started the post before midnight, so I think it counts), so I made her a cake!
Sadly, she lives far, far away, and so cannot help us eat it. But here are some pictures:
Aaaaand, a closeup:
And one more, for fun:
Thanks and kudos to Culinography, from whom I borrowed the recipe (she acquiring it from Dorie). I’d type it in and everything, but it’s midnight and I’m going to bed now. Basically, I used candied lemon peel instead of lemon zest, and replaced the raspberry preserves with lingonberry preserves (ran out). Other than that, pretty much as written. Taste report tomorrow :)
Happy Birthday, Tammy!
