TWD- Chewy, Chunky Blondies

July 27, 2010– Nicole of Cookies on Friday picked Chewy, Chunky Blondies on page 109 in Baking From My Home To Yours by Dorie Greenspan.

You may wonder why these lovely blondies are adorned with green icing (RLB’s white chocolate mouselline buttercream to be exact).  Well it was my darling Patricks 4th birthday and these brownies were the base of his cake.  The cake design comes straight from the most recent Donna Hay kids party annual.

The brownie is the base.

The white chocolate dome hides a yummy surprise.  Think of it as a pinata for parents who are concerned about giving children cricket  or baseball bats.

This was a very popular and kind of surprising base to use for this birthday cake.  But I love to use brownies as they can take a lot of topping and weight as they are so dense themselves.

This was a great pick and we enjoyed it very much.  Now go check the blogroll and see what fun everyone else had.
