It's Tuesday so that means we get to talk about food. And because it's St Patrick's Day on Saturday we are going to talk about green food.
I think that when you put 'Ireland' and 'food' together you most commonly wind up with potatoes, and as I shared on Friday, What Katie Ate has an awesome 'Irish Mash' recipe which comes as a side to her 'Irish Lamb Stew Pie' but after seeing this great pin here I really wanted to try out my very own green layer cake. Because I like to be efficient I thought I would try making my layer cake like these can cakes shared on Oh Happy Day!
So off I went to whip up this simple white cake from Sweetapolita and make my can cakes.... only they didn't really work out as hoped - I couldn't for the life of me figure out how long to cook them for and had a huge amount of trouble getting them out in one piece. So my original plan of a 4-layer 4-colour cake went down the drain and I used my two remaining batches of cake mix poured them into some ramekins and hoped for the best. And this is what I ended up with....
Joel said the icing was awesome and the cake definitely worth making again... maybe not green next time though
