The Creme de Menthe Cake

Ok, so I’m working on catching up on some of the cake creations I’ve made over the last few months, and as you can see in the title, I’ve been getting a little creative.  And this time it was for my little brother, Russell’s, birthday.

For some background, Russell used to love eating Creme de Menthe cookies around the holidays.  Besides the great chocolate-mint combination, when he found out that a liqueur was used to make the mint layer he used to love telling people he could feel himself getting drunk from eating the cookies.

Years later, those memories were harnessed and turned into the Creme de Menthe cake:

As you may or may not be able to see, that’s two packages of brownies, with a layer of Creme de Menthe cookie filling in between, all topped by an improvised chocolate ganache and a little more Creme de Menthe filling for decoration and lettering.

Now, this was not a cake for the faint-hearted.  It was DENSE, but extremely tasty.  Unfortunately, after you had a slice, you were probably set on chocolate for the next few weeks.  However, it was a very good slice that was a lot of fun to make!
