Continuing with my current cake theme, I made a cake inspired by my favorite cookie, the Samoa. Caramelized toasted coconut and chocolate with a vanilla base, this cake is basically just a Samoa cookie on steroids.
This three layer cake is super flavorful gingerbread that has distinct flavors of ginger, molasses and spices. A fresh ginger simple syrup keeps the cake moist, and the homemade caramel sauce with whiskey and sea salt adds to the buttercream and fills the layers.
EAT MORE CAKE. Life is short, and I like cake. I like baking cake, brainstorming interesting flavor combinations, reinventing classics, and most importantly – eating cake. I dreamt up the flavor combination for this cake and it is BOMB.
