Wow! Very unique - my favourite kind of recipe to try!! The cake is a typical sponge cake - nice & light & light-tasting. But, it's a fabulous base for the fantastic frosting!! I actually made as cupcakes (yield: 18 cupcakes) for a co-worker's birthday. I only had 3/4 cup of peanuts so I crushed them all & put them all in the frosting. Big hit at the office!!

The cake is so... so... foofy! It is so light and fluffy! The icing is also perfect. Not too sweet and not bland. It also spreads really nicely. Even for a non-icing-spreader like me! I can't wait to share this with the neighbours! I have never really made a cake from scratch before. At least not a "real" cake like this one! I am so proud of me! And I have you to thank for it. Thank you!!
