Perfect St. Patrick's Day Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2013
I made this for a St. Paddy's day party and it was a hit. I followed the recipe and directions for the cake as written, and it came out moist, light and tender, with a rich chocolate flavor. I would reduce baking time by 5 minutes due to the cake developing a bit of a crust on the edges. I trimmed it, which made icing a bit more challenging due to crumbs. Speaking of crumbs- If presentation is important to you, I'd recommend making extra frosting for a crumbcoat prior to the final icing of the cake. The Bailey's frosting is excellent- I used the Hazelnut flavor of bailey's and it was scrumptious.

Easy Pavlova

Scrumptious! You need to know if your even runs hot...Mine does and I neglected to adjust either it or the cooking time, so the dessert turned a little brown, but was still fabulous.

Pastry Cream

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2012
Mmmm.... yum. I found that after mixing the egg/flour mix to the hot milk, it started to thicken too quickly, and wasnt loose enough to boil the floury taste out. I used a few TB of milk to thin it out and boil for a minute or so. It set up just fine after that. A little bit lumpy, but that's fixable if it bothers you. Sooo much better than store bought or instant custards.
