3 Cakes in 2 weeks plus 60 Easter eggs equals kitchen chaos. I am making a SURPRISE cake for my brother-in-law. I hope he doesnot see this post until after tomorrow. He wanted to know where to get a Diplomat cake aside from Bon Ton's. A light bulb moment... his birthday is coming up and "I" could make him a Diplomat cake. I found a recipe by Drew and I thought I could give it a try. Here is step one: Make a Genoise cake and Rum syrup! Tomorrow, I will be making the Rum Buttercream and Puff pastry to layer the cake together. I will let you all know how it turns out.
