Gateau Anniversaire


A.k.a. "birthday cake" from yesterday. Yes, it was my day. Let's not have that age conversation, okay?

This cake is also known as a "Pithiviers," and it's named for a town about an hour from here. Mmm, sugary and delicious. I love the white icing, though I passed the glazed orange peels off to the kids.

In doing my research about this cake, I see that there are many varieties, though this looks like the one I see in all the bakeries around here (minus the fancy toppings). It's got a white almond cake inside that's quite dense.

I'm sure my waistline's a bit denser today now too...
