I love this time of year, the fall flavors like pumpkin, apple and cranberry, the spices like cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, & allspice, the holiday cheer and these Halloween cookies I made last year.So much fun!!

This weeks Heavenly Cake Bakers project is Gold Ignots but I decided to do the Peanut Butter Ignots as the recipe was basically the same and I thought the peanut butter would be better. I think these Ignots lacked flavor so I doctored them up with a peanut butter buttercream rosette and chocolate transfer's left over from the cake in the previous post.
I took them to the beauty shop and they liked them. Most of the recipes in Rose's Heavenly Cakes are great just not these Ignots.

This cake was so good!! The cake was banana and the filling was chocolate pastry cream with fresh bananas in it. It was covered with chocolate ganache and homemade transfer sheet decorations. I put a little gold luster dust on the transfer sheet as I was making them and then I found the perfect gold candles to bring it all together.
The gentlemen I made the cake for was thrilled and called me the next day to tell me just how much he and his guests loved the cake. His inspiration for the cake was a childhood memory of his grandmother's banana cake and being the gracious man that he is he told me mine was better than his grandmother's. Now that is a compliment.
