This week's choice was made by Katya of Second Dinner and she chose this spectacular cake that would be at ease in any very special occasion. As it was a chesnut cake I decided to make it chesnut shaped .
To make this recipe you need to prepare several things but they can all be made in advance.
Luckily chesnuts are in season so I bought the fresh ones and boiled them with some bay leaf.
I was ready to assemble the cake yesterday when I was hit by the flu (which one?) so I postponed the two cakes until now... do you like my motobike?
Please visit all the others TWDers who may have baked a different recipe as this is a special month.
