The hosts of this month challenge were Dolores of Chronicles in Culinary Curiosity, Alex of Blondie and Brownie and Jenny of Foray Into Food.
I have to admit the challenge itself was a bit frustrating to me. I didn't feel the recipe was completely clear on the details and therefore struggled my way through some of the steps. For example, right off the bat I burned the caramel! Yuk! So then I tried round two on the caramel and it came out delicious, but only because I didn't cook it as dark as the instructions said. Then I got confused on a couple other things, but that may have been more a user(baker) error - uh, me. Anyway, I'm not all that pleased with the results though Jason claims they're delicious. The caramel browned butter frosting was just too sweet for me and I like more of a light buttercream. And I felt the cake was a bit too dry as well. Just way too much work for this cake.
But alas, the challenge is complete and they turned out looking pretty cute! :-)Looking forward to next month's challenge!
