Georgous Cakes - part 7
This week I made a Layered Espresso Walnut Loaf and Angel Mint Cakes. 'im outdoors doesn't really like nuts so the espresso loaf is without walnuts, but I have to say it is still very nice. I am less sure about the mint cakes. I can deal with mint chocolates but other types of mint 'things' are just a bit weird.
I'm also not sure how the mint cakes will hold out. They already feel a little soft!
But I was very impressed with how well the loaf rose. So much so the top caught a little! Nothing a little icing can't hide.
Layered Espresso Walnut Loaf: This was pretty good. 'im outdoors said it was in his top three. Lasted the week well.
Angel Mint Cakes: Dreadful. Mint cake is weird anyway but by day 2 it was gone slimy.
