Recap of Last Year’s “Other” Desserts

Some desserts don’t fall into a major category, so I label them Other. Eventually, I’ll update my labels and create a Cake and Pie label, but until then, here’s my Top 5 list of “Other” desserts.

This Cinnamon Roll Monkey Bread was a concoction I dreamed up for a Bundt-Off. Yes, I have crazy friends, and yes, this is crazy delicious. I need to make it again…

When a special occasion popped up, I knew instantly that I wanted needed to make this Chocolate Overdose Cake. I topped it with chocolate covered strawberries to add some elegance. It was exactly what you’d expect from a layer of brownie, topped with chocolate mousse, topped with a chocolate cake layer, all overed in chocolate ganache.

When spring rolled around, I made this Lemon Raspberry Cake. It was the first time I had ever decorated a layer cake and I was pretty proud of how it turned out.

The Homemade Ding Dongs transported me back to a time of brown bagged lunches in the cafeteria of my middle school.

And I had to include Hubby’s first attempt at baking on my list. He made this Strawberry Shortcake Cake for my birthday and did a great job at it!

    I am planning on making the chocolate overdose cake for my hubby’s birthday coming up in a couple of weeks. I wanna add a white chocolate mousse. So, I’m thinking about cutting the cake in half and adding it there…what do you think? Would that work? =)
