      I made this for my dad's birthday and it was fantastic. The cake itself was nice and moist, and it was definitely gingery (though I actually added an extra tablespoon of powdered ginger because my dad loves it so much). The frosting was delicious, and I really liked it in combination with the ginger cake. I made a 3/4 recipe of the frosting, as it looked like it would make a lot, and it was (barely) enough to cover the whole cake thinly. I would probably just make a full recipe if I make it again. To decorate, I cut the candied ginger into thin slices and then used a tiny cookie cutter to cut little flowers to put on top. All in all, a great cake, everyone loved it.
