Great save with the DB challenge. Your cake turned out wonderfully with the amaretto flavourings


Love the Amaretto, Simona


I actually like the almond topping, which I would bet adds a nice bit of texture. Part of the daring baker experience is the ingenuity displayed when things don't go the way the recipe reads.


Love the pronunciations your provide! Amaretto sounds delicious!


Don't underestimate your achievement, Simona. This is one of the more complicated feats of baking, one that would likely be tackled best by an accomplished pastry chef -- in other words "Practice, practice, practice." Amaretto is a gorgeous flavor for a very fanciful creation.


You're right...as long as the guests like it! Glad you cooking it.


The test is in the eating, so I guess the taste must have been really good! Thoroughly enjoyed your blog - It has a lot of individuality! I also liked the audio you have added at the end of the posts - it helped me correct my pronunciations, though I may not get the accent as perfect!

Thanks to all for your encouraging words.

Thanks, Susan, for your words of wisdom. You are right: practice will make me improve my skills.

Welcome, sunshinemom: I am glad you enjoyed the audio portion of my blog.


Ho letto con molto interesse le tue esperienze relative a questo tipo di torta che ho conosciuto ultimamente: deve essere golosissima.
Il ciocolato bianco è godurioso, ma è difficile da lavorare.

You did a wonderful job on your cake.

Ciao Lenny. Dopo la mia esperienza, ammiro ancora di piu' la tua maestria col cioccolato bianco (e certamente anche con altri ingredienti).

Thanks, Natalie.
