Jared's Birthday

Jared's birthday was on Wednesday, he had to work that night so I made him a cake and we took it to him at work. I found the recipe at Our Best Bites - if you haven't checked this site out, you should. None of the recipes have failed me yet! Although I did simply the recipe: I didn't use their mousse recipe, instead I just made some Chantilly cream (whipping cream, icing sugar and vanilla) and added cocoa powder to it. And instead of their ganache recipe I just bought a bottle pre-made which was cheaper and easier. I also used skor bits instead of heath bits. But it was really good and pretty easy.

On another note, I just bought a martha stewart punch pack that was on sale and I LOVE it! I made Jared's card with it. I've redone my website again and wanted to incorporate the punched edge it makes so that's really why I bought it. With it I can make my own custom cut business cards or package materials.
