Hello Frosting Friends!!
My latest attempt was the Snickerdoodle Cake Pg 121 of the CMD. Not to shabby. This cake is based on a white cake mix with cinnamon/vanilla added.
This cake pulls together fast with minimal ingredients. The aroma from the cooking, OM MY GOSH
The whole house smelled like Christmas.
The cake is moist and the color is a light speckled brown color, reminiescent of, but not as dark as, a spice cake.
The taste guinea pig results varied but were overwhelmingly positive.
My personal opinion and that of another poster here, is that is is more like an average spice cake than a true snickerdoodle. It was 'OK'.
The majority of my night shift guineas said that it truly did taste like a snickerdoodle and that they enjoyed that this cake was not as "sweet-sweet", the cinnamon gives it a more laid back, yet exotic taste.
One of my coworkers said that if she ever got married, THIS would be her wedding cake. She boxed up the last piece and took it home for her mother to try.
The frosting is a basic buttercream with cinnamon added that would work up nicely for decorating, I am going for taste with these trials so I do little to nothing with the decorating.
This cake takes a solid 4 to 4.5 Guinea Pigs. Enjoy! Thanx for support and your feedback also, I use these in my overall reviews.
