Anyone who knows me knows if I see a recipe that sounds a little unusual, you can count on me to try it! When I saw a cake with pink peppercorns in it in the Layered cookbook, I knew immediately I would try it!
This cake was almond butter cake layers filled with homemade cherry balsamic jam iced in pink peppercorn Swiss meringue buttercream topped with crispy meringue kisses. It was really fantastic. The almond and cherry flavors go really well together and the hints of balsamic and pink peppercorn leave a slighly more exotic twist on your palate but it's subtle enough that this cake was loved by everyone who tried it!
This blog will follow my adventures with cake, pastry and all things sweet!
