I must confess…I sometimes (okay…oftentimes) just cannot do it all. Last weekend we had so much going on around our home and with Easter and some entertaining, I was truly feeling overwhelmed. I suppose that if I suffered from anxiety it would have hit me hard, but thankfully I don’t and just accept the fact that I’m not perfect and do what I can to make things right. Like in baking and dessert time…
And this Chantilly Cake that isn’t perfect but it is pretty. It didn’t start our particularly pretty and here’s why.
How To Easily Beautify A Plain Blah Cake
My cake was sort of squished from sitting in the car, so to cover the bottom I took the fruit from the top and circled it around the “damage”. If I’d had some shredded coconut in the pantry I would have covered at least the bottom portion with it.
A version with sugar sprinkles and obviously you could do them in any color that you might have.
Next I added some Cacao Nibs before serving for a bit of crunch. Cacao nibs are said to be a superfood that boosts energy and burns fat. WIN/WIN and they taste like chocolate.
