Mint Cake, Spring 2012

Mint has been dubbed the official color of Spring 2012...

And I made a cake to celebrate!

I made this Chocolate Ganache cake with Peppermint Frosting for a dinner I was invited to by Lauren DeSantis, the DC Supper Club host for the Tri-Lamb Group supper club series.  I had such a blast at the dinner, everything, especially Lauren's braised lamb shanks, was delicious!  Lauren is pretty amazing; not only is she an attorney, but she is also the host and producer of Capital Cooking, (her very own T.V. show!) and the author of Capital Cooking Cookbook.  I will be sharing the recipe for this cake on her blog very soon. UPDATE: Find the recipe HERE!

I enlisted the expertise of the nicest pic-taker in DC, Sebastian Marin for my cake photos.  He is a very talented photographer (with fancy equipment and a gorgeous macro lens) and my cake has never looked so good!  Sebastian and my cakes will be seeing more of each other very soon...
