This Red Wine Chocolate Castle Cake is an irresistibly moist chocolate cake spiced with the dark fruit notes of Malbec wine & coated with a lightly sweetened cream cheese frosting, then covered with a sprinkle embellished white chocolate bark for a fun, yet regal appearance.
A buttery chocolate crust is filled with a silky chocolate ganache with hints of champagne & cognac. It’s then topped with luxurious chocolate truffles & champagne glass sugar cookies. It’s the ultimate of romantic desserts & is perfect for Valentines Day, anniversaries, New Years, or any other day you want to up the romance & treat your senses to an indulgent chocolate dessert.
Saint Valentines Day is rapidly approaching. Are you ready to spoil your sweetie rotten?
The good news is you don’t have to spend tons of moolah to show them how sweet you are on them. Nor do you have to spend hours tiredly whisking egg after egg while you hurredly wipe flour away from your exhausted brow. No siree! Whether you are looking for something creamy and indulgent or unique and quirky, there are plenty of sweet delights available that can titillate even the most discerning sweetie.
To help inspire you, I’ve compiled a list of some of my favorite sweet finds.
It seems I’ve been having a run of bad luck this week. My camera decided a siesta was in order despite the fact I have only had it for a month – enough time to realize that my life would abruptly come to a standstill without it and a sense of panic would overtake me as my mind raced to figure out an adequate plan to alleviate this crisis. To add to my panic, Canon tells me (or the Mr. since I was too busy sobbing in the corner, quickly dabbing the raccoon eyes painted on my face by my coal black mascara) that it will take two weeks to fix it. Gasp!? Two weeks!!!!! Does Canon know that the world will now come to an end? What’s a girl to do for her photography classes? How will I document my latest adventures. . .or misadventures in the kitchen? Reluctantly, I dusted off my Canon Rebel which now feels like a washed up toy, not the tried and true friend that once accompanied me on my many adventures across the globe. I feel so terrible saying this. Do cameras have feelings?
