One year, after our visit, I believe it was Heather, who found in the Joy of Cooking, a white cake recipe and a recipe to make white chocolate whipped ganache. I made it and it was almost like the one we had at Budd Bay - I made it several times after that (this was years before I became gluten free) as it became a popular request.
"Regular" white cake with white whipped choc ganache
Well, Heather's birthday is today and when I asked her last week what kind of cake she wanted, she said, "Remember that white cake with the white chocolate ganache on top? I'd like that." So all day, Wednesday, I baked - 2 cakes, a 13" x 9" regular white cake and a 9" round gluten free white cake for me. I also made the white chocolate whipped ganache, which is really easy to do. I was concerned tho when it looked like the ganache wasn't coming together using my stand mixer (it has been years since I made this), I kept moving the head of the mixer up and down to get air into the ganache. I ended up at the end mixing it by hand so I could get it to come together. It finally came together and I was able to frost both cakes.
Both Jim and Heather said that the regular cake tasted great and the gluten free one was slightly on the dry side, but had great flavor. We had chocolate ice cream to go with our white cake.
