Have you ever been about to do something and then hear a great idea to change it up a bit and decide ‘Hey! Great idea. I’ll do that.’?
Then just when you are about to do that ‘great idea’, someone comes along and suggests you do the original?
When you do the original it doesn’t work and you kick yourself because you didn’t do that ‘great idea’?
That’s what happened with today’s TWD recipe that Stephanie of Confessions of a City Eater picked out for us.
Devil’s Food White Out Cake.
I had read on the TWD question and answer post, that someone had made 7 Minute frosting for this cake.
Great idea! I heart 7 Minute frosting.
Then the boy came home from college and said, ‘Don’t make the 7 Minute frosting, Mom, I just made the original icing today in class. It is so easy.’
So I did.
And I’m kicking myself.
7 Minute frosting forms a light sugary crust.
Dorie’s is delicious, but mushy.
And I didn’t want mushy…she says pouting.
Look away, Internet, it isn’t pretty.
Don’t worry. I’ll eat it anyway. There is chocolate involved!
If you have basic flour, sugar, eggs and chocolate in your pantry, you can make this cake.
Go check out Stephanie’s blog and grab the recipe. You will be glad you did.
And if you want to make a 7 Minute frosting, don’t let anyone talk you out of it.
