My baby sister, Caitlin, turned twenty one this past weekend. Being the youngest of four girls, we three elders knew that we had to pull out all the stops for her coming of age celebration. The night before, we counted down to midnight with the help of some very special desserts.
My sisters, Heather and Sarah, whipped up an amazing booze cake made from Guiness and topped with Baileys Frosting and Whiskey Ganache. I believe the original recipe was from Smitten Kitchen. It tasted amazing. A dense chocolate cake with the sophisticated flair of liquor infused icing. To go with it, I made up a batch of very special ice cream. One that might just haunt my dreams until the next batch is whipped up.
