An awesome filling from a TOH recipe for "Cream Cake Dessert" by Peggy Stott. The cake wasn't anything special, but the cream is incredible! She suggests filling a yellow cake with it for a potluck, instead of icing it. Cooking time includes cooling.
Use this icing to cover Peachtree Street Gingerbread Cake(Recipe #459977)!
This recipe comes from the "Gone With The Wind Cook Book - Famous Southern Cooking Recipes".
There is a note in the foreward which I love: "Gone With The Wind told of a style of living. as well as a romantic drama, A way of living, playing, and eating that thrilled us all."
I adopted this recipe. I had prepared it for a holiday function prior to the adoption. The comments from my original review stated, "This dense, rich chocolate cake is intensely moist. It baked perfectly and made a lovely layer cake. I will be using this recipe again for chocolate cake needs." The cake in my photo has Recipe #44126, between the layers, and is frosted with Recipe #31809 before being covered with my Recipe #105466. It was a huge hit, and I have made this cake many, many times since.
I got this recipe from a late 1980s Good Housekeeping at that time I wasn't a fan of Carrot Cake (if it wasn't chocolate, I wasn't interested), but I had close friend who wanted carrot cake for his birthday and I made this it was a huge hit and I even enjoyed it.
Delicate chocolate curls to garnish desserts, or to decorate cakes. Method found in an old issue of Good Housekeeping magazine. This recipe should provide enough curls to entirely cover a 2-layer cake. Adjust as necessary for desired amount of curls. ***NOTE***After submitting this recipe, I was informed that single ingredient recipes are not approved for this site. Therefore, the toothpick was added to the ingredient list. This toothpick is only used as a tool to lift the curls, as the heat of your hands will melt the delicate chocolate. The curls will not stand up to being punctured by the toothpick. They are adhered to the cake using the fresh frosting as glue.
