Ferrero Rocher Cake

It was snowing here in Amman, Jordan. And for those of you who don’t know much about Jordan, it snows a couple of days a year, and when it snows, it becomes a public holiday. So the day I decided to try the Ferrero Rocher recipe from the boxofspice blog, it was snowing, we were stuck at home for 3 days, with options of watching TV, playing with the snow, risking an adventurous drive around town or try and bake the sexiest cake ever.

Ferrero Rocher is sexy, and therefore a Ferrero Rocher Cake is just a phenomenal idea. Who would say no for a piece of that? The trick here is that the ingredients are not very cheap, and the process is not very simple. But I must admit, that if you enjoy baking, then the process of baking this cake is so much fun. It is a beautiful 3 step process, and it really feels like an equation, either a successful one or a miss. Thankfully and thanks to the recipe provided by boxofspice, the steps were very simple to follow and the result was just fantabulous.

As usual, minor changes have been made while I was baking this cake due to what was available. I recommend you bake it when you have the time, put some good music on, and just indulge in the baking process. Original recipe is on boxofspice,
