Of course, I made the Yella Cake with Fudgy Frosting from Cookin' Crunk because it's well suited to birthday cake. It looks like the kind of cake you'd make with a box and a tub!
I almost had a disaster when I went to make the frosting - I didn't have enough icing sugar or margarine! I supplemented somewhat by adding a bit of Speculoos, but it would've been fine without it. As with most frosting recipes, I still had more than enough even when I didn't have enough ingredients.
I really liked the flavour of this, but it was a bit denser than I was hoping for. I wonder if maybe that's because it doesn't have any baking soda. I was tempted to add a bit, but I wanted (for once) to follow the recipe. It was still tasty, just not as fluffy as I expected.
I'll be doing loads of recipes from this book tomorrow. Or at least, I hope I will - I might end up getting lazy and/or running out of time.
