Stephanie of Confessions of a City Eater chose Devils Food White Out Cake, on page 247-249 of Baking From My Home To Yours By Dorie Greenspan.
I was so lucky that this cake and a family birthday party co-incided (Happy Birthday to Gemma). This cake combines seriously rich devils food cake spiked with shards of chocolate topped with marshmallow frosting. The combination is a good balance but very sweet. Perfect party food really. But I do get a rather serious look on my face when cutting cake!
I think I liked the look of the cake only half covered in crumbs best but once I started throwing around the crumbs I was committed.
I had a slight change of method for the frosting from Dorie. I used the cream of tartar in the eggs to protect them from overwhipping. I wasn’t sure the reason it was used in the sugar solution.
The good news is my computer is back on deck and I lashed out and got a Canon Ixus 980. I haven’t had a chance for a really good play yet but I am really happy thus far.
Now go and check out the TWD blogroll and see the yummy cakes out there.
