Cake, Chestnuts, and Couscous

It was a good week in the kitchen. I successfully made a four-layer cake (chocolate stout layers, cream cheese frosting in between, and chocolate espresso ganache on top - in case you were curious) for M's half-birthday. No small feat in the easy bake oven.

Also, we got a little pile of chestnuts in our veggie box this week, so I had fun with my first experience of roasting and peeling them.

They were added to a couscous stuffing with cranberries, which in turn was stuffed into a seitan roast. Mmmmmm.

Congrats - a four layer cake is quite the accomplishment! I'm sure it was just as delicious as it sounds!
