Stacked Cookie Cake at Chasing Delicious

I could stare at the mesmerizing trickle of falling rain drops, stirred about in the gentle breeze accompanying the cement-grey clouds hovering high above, for hours. Bare feet carry me about a warm, dim house so my fingers can click, tap, switch and toggle what little noise-making devices remain on. Now I can watch and listen.

I slide open a tricky window and sit on the paint-chipped sill. A warm, damp breeze rushes over me; the metallic smell of a summer storm floods my nostrils. Nothing accompanies the sight and sound of a gentle storm like the infrequent smells of rain and gentle caressing touch of a dewy gust of wind.

My hand wraps around the edge of the sill. I lean out from the window as far as I can, struggling to clear the overhang. My arm shakes slightly under a struggle to control my own oddly-balanced weight. I open my mouth and stick my tongue out, hoping to catch a raindrop.

Nothing but the rain fills my senses now.

Italian Meringue: While italian meringue may be the most difficult and time consuming of the frostings, it is by far, in my opinion at least, the best. If you’re not up for making italian meringue, you can substitute in traditional buttercream frosting instead for a still delicious treat!

    My cookie and cake combo has to be classic concorde cake. The light chocolate mousse and biscuit is addictive to me.

    I am loving the Italian meringue layers. The extra time is worth the results, and while I rarely venture into the land of whipped whites and hot sugar syrup, I am rewarded each time I do.
