This has been a wild weekend for the blog. On Friday, I went ahead and pushed the button to move everything off of blogger and over here to wordpress. Hopefully you are seeing an updated version of my site and not the old blogger site. If you are, then success!
And if you aren’t, please don’t tell me. I’m not sure I can handle anymore computer talk for the next few days.
So I apologize for the lack of posting. My main focus has basically been just getting this page up and running. As you can see, there are still lots of little things that need to be tweaked and I’ll be adding to the site over the next few weeks, but for right now, I think I have a pretty good shell. Let me know what you think of the new design!
For June birthday’s at work, I decided to give the snicker’s ice-box cake a try a try. But, don’t let the fact that it is a no cook cake fool you. In my opinion, it is 100% easier to make a regular cake, as opposed to this one. And while the final product was absolutely delicious and yes, it was probably worth making homemade caramel as opposed to store bought, I can honestly tell you that it will be a long time before I make this one again.
I do absolutely love how the layers turned out. And after a day or two, it starts to taste like snicker’s tiramisu, which trust me, is not a bad thing.
Not a bad thing at all.
Oh and remember how I mentioned homemade caramel? Check out that lovely chunk of it right there….
Here you go, a closer look. Just in case that last picture didn’t show it off enough. The homemade caramel really was worth it. Although I absolutely suggest using a candy thermometer to help you and not follow the instructions at all in the link provided. Caramel making takes a little more work than what the other recipe suggests, unless I am just completely inept. Which honestly wouldn’t be that much of a surprise; I was ready to toss the whole project several times during the making of this thing.
But like I said, the end result was so worth it. My co-workers made a point to tell me how much they enjoyed it, which of course makes the whole ordeal worthwhile.
It really is so pretty once it is all frozen, cut, and plated.
But don’t let these pictures fool you… there was definitely chocolate all over me, my appliances, and my camera when I got done photographing this. And at one point, the other half of the snicker’s cake looked like this:
Regardless of how it looked, it still tasted great! If I were you, I would send the recipe to your favorite little determined baker and ask them to make it for you.
Thanks for hanging in there with all of the blog changes. I’m still trying to get everything all figured out, and I know a lot of my old posts still aren’t quite working, but I promise to have all of that fixed within the next week. Once everything is totally complete, I’ll share all the info on how I switched from blogger to wordpress. It can be daunting, but from what I’ve heard, is totally worth it.
Hope you had a fantastic weekend!
