St. Paddy’s Day

St Paddys DayA few years back, I was invited to a party that coincided with March 17, St. Patrick’s Day.
I wanted to make a cake that was apropos for the evening, but all the cakes I looked at on Pinterest seemed too silly for an evening dinner party, where our beer was likely not going to be green.
As a nod to the colour, I made white and green shards of chocolate and added them to a vanilla cake (that yes, I tinted green — couldn’t help myself) that was covered in vanilla buttercream. Awkward to serve, but delicious, I think it said Happy St. Patrick’s Day, in its own way.
May the luck of the Irish be with you!
