|I used butter instead of shortening, because I don't tend to
buy shortening, and my mom said it was ok.
|A little hard to read, but it says 1 pt whipping cream, and 4
heaping tbsp cocoa.
|The final cake. Got a little sloppier on the
frosting than I'd have liked to (the parchment
paper slipped) but nobody seemed to notice.
|One tiny piece left. Perfect for breakfast cake!
This was a stupendous cake - spicy from the brown sugar, tangy from the buttermilk. The frosting is elegant and light, complementing the cake beautifully. I may make it again this weekend.
