This was fantastic, and a real treat for us ginger-lovers! It wasn't quite as time-consuming as it looks. I ended up using much less than 1/2 cup of turbinado sugar, because I was afraid it would be overly sweet with the 2 cups of sugar in the cake, and it came out just right for us. Thanks for posting this keeper. Made for Pick a Chef Fall 2009.
