In case you haven't noticed yet I love making cakes. The artistry is so fun. Plus they're tasty.
For Christmas I was given All Cakes Considered. It was written by a woman on staff of All Things Considered, who brings a cake to work every Monday. One recipe particularly caught my eye, Graham Cracker Cake. The cake has no flour at all, only graham cracker crumbs. And there's something so good about graham crackers.
The icing is the perfect complement. It's essentially whipped cream with some powdered sugar, coffee, and cocoa. Light and airy, with a delightful touch of mocha flavor, it is delicious atop the heavy graham flavor of the cake.
The best part, for me at least, was decorating the top. The series of stars we so much fun to do, and added such a special touch.
