Remember when I was so devastated by the disappearance of all my spice cake documentation from 77. Braised Short Ribs?
Well, I am devastated no more. I found the photos in an incorrectly named folder in my laptop.
I used the following tutorial from Whisk Kid to make my first foray into layer cake icing. It was extremely helpful and I don’t know what I would’ve done without it.
So that’s my spice cake. It doesn’t look at all like the result from the Whisk Kid instructions, but this was honestly my first try at frosting a cake that wasn’t in a brownie pan. So, all in all I think I’m pretty rad.
I don’t know what recipes are coming up in the Dinner is Served! cavalcade of cakes, but at least I am a bit more confident in my baking abilities. OK, scratch that, we all know that’s so not true. I feel more confident in my frosting abilities. There will be no stopping me.
And I have decided that since I put Ginger Snaps on the Spice Cake that makes it a Ginger Spice cake. And you know what that means.
Oh, yes indeed. I gotta bring the pain. You know you want it. You gotta have it.
But before you get it, I want to share with you that I’m the I website of the month over at Black Dogs which is totally awesome so you should pop on over and check it out. There’s an interesting story involving Rasputin’s penis and also some retro recipe cards from Good Housekeeping. Go explore.
So here it is. The Spice Girls Megamix. It’s like I’m back at Carnegie Mellon for my freshman year all over again! Oh, and congrats to Posh and Becks on the birth of their 4th child. Although the new baby’s name totally ripped off George Costanza and sounds vaguely like a brand of Japanese Cigarettes, Mild Seven, which also totally reminds me of college. Ah, good times.
