Much improvement in The Cake

October 22, 2010 at 7:11 am 2 comments

One of the little surprises I learned upon getting married is that I am now in charge of The Fox’s birthday cake – a 6-eggs-and-3-sticks-of-butter German Chocolate Cake made from his grandmother’s recipe that mother-in-law Attila has made every year of his life.  No pressure there.  Thankfully Attila supplied me with gifts of a cake plate and two baking pans.  The Cake is supposed to be 3 layers, but I make it with 2 plus a batch of cupcakes which last until nearly Thanksgiving.  There’s really only so much cake two people can eat.

Four birthdays later my efforts are much improved.  Total preparation time is down from 6 hours to just under 2, and the kitchen doesn’t look like the cocoa fought the flour with eggs caught in the cross-fire.
