Desserts, so complicated! I don’t want to mess up, so I am turning for help to the DCIB community who might have experience here.
I wanted a special dessert for Christmas dinner, so I went to the website for the German bakery where my family has gone my whole life, and they had a big advertisement for their special “Baumkuchen”. I had to pick my style, and I panicked and went with Chocolate Covered. So I may have already made a mistake.
And I wanted layered, not just one layer, so it looks like a Christmas Tree. Again, may already be a mistake, I just don’t know.
I don’t want to make any more mistakes. How do we eat this thing? With whipped cream, without whipped cream? With ice cream? In little pieces with our fingers or big cake slices with forks? Is it really a dessert for after dinner, or is it more of a breakfast or lunch thing?
Most of all, what do you do with the layers? Do you cut each one in turn, do you disassemble and then cut, do you have one huge piece with all three layers included?
And how is this different from the Chimney Cakes we used to get at the special Chimney Cakes bakery?
