100_1942_00This weeks Tuesdays with Dorie was chosen by Stephanie of Confessions of a City Eater.  She chose Dorie’s Devil’s Food White Out Cake, which happens to be the cake featured on the cover of Dorie Greenspan’s book, Baking: From My Home to Yours. I ended up making this cake in advance for my Wilton Fondant and Gum Paste Class.

From the scraps, I also made a mini cake so that it would look similar to Dorie’s 🙂  This was also suppose to be my birthday cake, but I never got around to cutting into it on my birthday.  When it was finally sliced it was crazy because the icing had disintegrated, but the cake was still structurally okay.  Funny thing is that there was a huge empty gap where the icing use to be.  Oh well, I did have a chance to try the cake when I was icing it and it was very tasty and I love the marshmellowiness of the frosting.

    That’s so interesting that the frosting just went away. It looks great!

    You would never be able to tell – it still looks fantastic! All these recipes are learning experiences for me – that’s how I look at it – nice job!
