A ‘Cake’ for my Father.

Good morning, Good evening, Goodnight. No matter what time it is for you at the time of reading, I hope you’re having an absolutely wonderful day! Today, today being the eight of May, is my father’s birthday! To celebrate, we decided rather than to make a simple cake to produce a tall-concoction of profiteroles submerged in an unhealthy blend of salted caramel ‘n’ chocolate sauce…

here’s how we did it…

1. Laying the foundations!

The first thing we did when forming this food-coma-inducing monstrosity was laying the foundations. of course, when forming a cone-like structure formed of little pastries, most of the time you would never be able to leave the centre hollow through sake of falling in- this is why- just to add to the weight ;)- we pasted the bottom of each roll with a small, gentle scoop of sticky-caramel to keep it to either the plate, or to keep them together! As you’d expect, this pattern went around and around until you’d inevitably reach a peak, looking like this:

2. The Golden Coating.

man, oh man… this does look like a heart attack on a plate. Before you panic, we didn’t finish the mountain in its entirety- the contents also divided between six individuals, so it’s all good! – in the microwave, we partially melt salted caramel and chocolate which quickly turns to a sauce to be delicately dribbled all around the roles.

3. The Birthday Bit.

Once the unstable concoction had been raised, it was time to place some candles on the top and sing the birthday spirits! and with that? It was done!


After that? All that’s left to do is eat it.

A happy note to end on.

Well, well, well… this was an experience, wasn’t it! I thought I’d say that for the record, this is not by any means a recurring thing! Just a one off birthday treat! – anyways, I hope you’ve all had a lovely day! Enjoy your week.

Stay happy,
