Amarula Cake

Dang, this was a fun cake to make.  First, I had quite a large order to fill for a birthday party.  It was on the catering side though, so no cake was planned.  Until hubby called and gave me a top secret assignment to make Gill a really cool birthday cake – something different.

So I took my old tried and trusted chocolate cake recipe and added an Amarula zing to it.  Topped it off with Ferrero Rocher balls, an Amarula butterscotch sauce (which was a reall challenge to make) and added some rose petals.

Of course, I had major performance anxiety about this cake as I have never tried it before and didn’t even know what it would taste like.  But everybody came back saying it was fabulous, so I’ll be on the menu for this coming Saturday when it’s my kid’s birthday.
