Week 48: Gingerbread Cake

cake 1

With Christmas season on the near horizon, I’ve got festive bakes on the brain. But seriously, how is it already the 21st?!

For week 48, I’ve made a gingerbread cake. The recipe is simple to make, but the combination of the ginger, cloves and syrupy molasses give each bite a complex spiced caramelized finish.

To balance out the spice, I topped each slice with unsweetened freshly whipped cream. Mmmmmm.

As I wrap up the challenge (four more cakes left!), I’m going to keep my posts short. I’ve just about said everything there is to say about cake at this point!

Final thoughts on week 48:

  • If you’re looking for something that’s easy to make but gives an impressive taste, this is your cake!
