Mocha-Walnut Cake



Working as a cake decorator, my family definitely got its fill of cake! This one seemed to delight, though....thumbs up all around! The mocha and ground walnuts toned down the sweetness and added a nice bit of crunch. What I love most about TWD is that it gets me back in the kitchen! The decorating is fun, but my first love is creating the foundation! A pretty cake is worthless if it tastes like crap!

  13. You have a great eye for details. I have tried cake decorating before and it was a disaster. I cant make a decent cake design. Your cake looks much delicious because of your design. Walnut cake has been one of my favorite cakes, it goes really well with the new coffee pod I bought yesterday. Great post!
