Remember the last weeks in July/first of August when everyone submitted their photos of their dream cake and then voted on their favorite? Well it is finally here!! The yellow, grey, and white chevron cake is finished and ready for you all to learn how to make!
And thanks to my sister I had matching nails while I decorated! :)
If you make this cake, send a picture and I'll add it to this post!
1. The 'So You Think You Can Dance' finale was on Tuesday and I was loving every second of it. Those dancers are a.maz.ing.
2. My sister (11 years old by the way) did some pretty amazing nail work! It's like having my own personal nail stylist :) Plus it's great sister quality time!
3. I have decided that I want to join Teach For America one day! It is such an amazing program. They choose 2,000 teachers that get to go to underprivileged schools to teach and inspire the students to do their best. I want to change students lives!
4. The smell of pumpkin chocolate chip cookies baking when you walk in the house is THE best smell to bring in fall :) I can't wait for the pumpkins, leaves changing color, and the delicious food!
I am so excited for this tutorial today! I am making a recipe from a new book that is coming out called Cake Balls by Dede Wilson. The recipe is called Toffee-Brown Butter-Pecan. It has a great butter flavor that is incorporated throughout the whole recipe and also compliments the pecans. This is a very rich flavor! I also show you how to dip the cake balls into the white chocolate and then to decorate them beautifully :)
(If you just want a tutorial on how to make cake balls instead of watching the recipe start the video at 5:44)
One of the things that I love about this book is that all of the recipes are so unique! They include everything from apple pie and chocolate cookie dough to creme brulee and vegan chocolate! It really has something for everyone. I can't wait to try some more of these recipes!
Here are the exact measurements:
-4 tablespoons unsalted butter
-1/2 cup sugar
-Pinch of salt
-3/4 cup toasted pecan halves
