I was privileged to have gestational diabetes AGAIN with my third child. I was hoping that the third time was a charm..yeah, no such luck. With A's due date being so close to mine, we thought that we would postpone my speciality cake for after her due date so I could savor every mouthful without worrying about my blood test. I am SO glad that we waited.
This is not your average cake. For starters, the icing is a whipped white chocolate mouse icing. It is fluffy and light with just the right balance of sweetness. I hate when icing is super sweet and stiff. This icing literally melts on your tongue. The sweetness balances with a hint of white chocolate. Yum!
But it doesn't stop there. The cake is moist and not dense. You can have a big slice and not feel like your stomach has a sugary weight sitting in there. This particular cake is layered with a raspberry preserve. J calls it smooshed raspberries. The sweet, tang of the raspberries compliments the fluffiness of the white chocolate mouse icing.
As you can see, it was a bit of a hit in our house. I'll be keeping close tabs on the leftovers and may even have to sneak a late midnight snack tonight. YUM! I wish that I was able to send a sample to everyone.
