Mary's Birthday

It's Mary's birthday. Yes, the very same Mary from the first entry in this blog. The one who got me started. Here's her cake.

It is a chocolate cake with a Bavarian cream filling. The outside is decorated with chocolate and butterscotch disks and flakes. To make them I melted chocolate and spread it thin on a piece of wax paper. I let it set up (not too soft, not too hard) and cut out the circles. To make the flakes on top I melted the chips and spread them as thin as I could on the wax paper. Then I stuck them in the freezer to make them nice and hard. I took them out and broke them apart to make the flakes.
