It's been a while, but I'm back. And you're here, too -- thank you!
I bet you're wondering where that cake recipe is that I promised you last week. Well, let me be frank: it didn't turn out quite like I expected. The end result was mind-blowing, but there were many, many bumps and adaptations along the way. So many hiccups that I decided not to share it with you until I could nail down a clear recipe. Phrases like "when half of the cake sticks to the pan" and "when the meringue is taking forever to fluff thanks to the gosh dang humidity" don't exactly sell a recipe, do they?
At any rate, the cake was pretty ding dang delicious, and I will be making it again ASAP.
