John Launder was our special guest star at the last Cake Club. Kyle Minor and Jennifer Check in attendance. Kyle and I made a two layer yellow cake from the Cake Bible and neo-classical chocolate buttercream frosting. Then all three of us made a golden wheat carrot cake for John Polito's birthday. Both cakes turned out delicious! The buttercream frosting was very very buttery. So buttery, that you could almost not taste the chocolate. I didn't like it at first, but the more I ate it, the more it grew on me. John Launder saved the day on the carrot cake. It split coming out of the cake pan, but somehow, he got the top layer to come off in one piece and flipped it onto the base exactly at the right spots. Amazing. We doctored the cracks by making the cream cheese frosting a glaze that easily covered the blemishes. Ingenious!
