It’s my birthday! Blog birthday that is, and to celebrate I’m enjoying Kahlúa Coffee Cream Cake. One year ago today I posted my first recipe on my website www.compelledtocook.com That’s right, I’m only one, and in blog years that’s pretty young. So much can happen in a year and it goes by in a blink!
While I am a full time working one women show, that doesn’t mean I go it alone! I have an amazing husband who helps me with most all things computer related, such as back ups, photo organization, photography tips and is an honest critic who eats most everything I make….good or bad. He is my go to guy to say the least. I also have my two wonderfully furry and sometimes pestering cats, Jazz and Peanut. It’s Peanut who takes up most of the pestering category, for stealing food props, jumping on the table and being the furriest critter I’ve ever had the pleasure of loving. They keep me company during picture taking and baking and are just simply happy that I am at home. I cannot forget my co-workers who indulge me to eat up all the baked goods I bring to work.
As I reflect on the past year, I cannot help but be excited for the next as I continue to learn, grow as a food blogger and bring my culinary skills to the forefront.
Now, as for the cake…..I love Tiramisu, so I wanted something reminiscent of that creamy coffee dessert. Kahlúa Coffee Cream Cake is just that, with tender cake hinted with coffee and layered with a coffee ganache and coffee mascarpone frosting. It’s an adult birthday cake that’s tall and glorious with coffee flavour. Enjoy!
