Chocolate Peanut Butter Ganache Cake

It’ll be nearly 5 years since my first post, time flies, I remember I started this when Serena was only 9 months old, and she’s now a big girl, at 5 1/2 and just about to leave Kindergarten and head over to the real world of big school and Grade 1.  I love that she’s growing up and I’m excited for every new journey that she’s undertaking, but I feel I am missing her childhood already!  But, let’s not make this a sob story about a mothers woes about children growing up and thinking of am empty nest 20 years too early! We celebrate the continuation of my 100th post with a Chocolate Peanut Butter Ganache Cake. And since my last post, there’s now a whole party waiting to get a slice of this.
