showdown! wet vs. dry!
Saga in making a cake for Ms. Rachel Tonthat
what to do when birthdays come? bake!
I got this recipe from Gourmet by way of epicurious
If yer going to do it..don't stress about certain specifics like mixers and pans etc. it'll still be delishious!
I got 3 cake pans at duane reade for 50 cents a piece..but it's a bit difficult to cut them in half so i didn't try...just 3 big layers did i make.
before you cook: take out the eggs and butter and bring to room temp
if you don't have a beater..just stir well
oh and for the frosting: 3 sticks of butter ya heard?! if there's no confectioners sugar is to be had you can make it by adding 1 tsp of cornstarch per cup of sugar and blend in a food processor/blender/or my personal tool the magic bullet
note of melting chocolate: double boiler! you can make one by putting a heat-safe bowl over a pot of water..watch the chocolate and be sure not to let it burn or to let the water boil
tangent!! saw this on epicurious today!! AHHH just the name.
