The cake is actually a crazy cake or wacky cake recipe, developed in the 1940s using no eggs, butter, or milk, so I knew it would turn out. I’ve mentioned before that I don’t like buttercream frosting, and I’ve mentioned many times my love of peanut butter. I love whoever thought up using peanut butter for frosting instead of margarine and shortening!
I baked the cake into two 6-inch layers, then frosted it. I made a double batch of frosting to have leftover to pipe borders. Then I topped it with chocolate curls I made from a hunk of dark chocolate, and a few gold flakes.
I had a taste of the cake I leveled off with a squirt of leftover frosting. It is chocolate peanut butter heaven! We’ll eat it after our dinner at Satay tonight. I’ll show you a slice next post.
Now I’m off for a birthday manicure and pedicure!
