Chocolate-Hazelnut Nutcracker Cake
For this month's Cake Slice Bakers selection, we voted for the Chocolate-Hazelnut Nutcracker Cake in the great book, Sky High Cakes: Irresistible Triple-Layer Cakes by Alisa Huntsman (page 51).
You need to make this cake.
No, really. You need to make this cake.
Okay, you don't believe me? Let me show you why...
The recipe calls for skinned hazelnuts but I couldn't find any. So, I toasted them and then furiously rubbed them in my hands to skin them! Not everything came off but I figured the extra fiber wouldn't hurt anyone. :)
Three layers of yum! Please, please make this cake! Alisa's book Sky High Cakes would be great under any baker's tree this season.
