Chai Cake


Bum, bum, bum, bum, bum!

I love this cake. It's, by far, the best cake I've ever had and I've had a lot of cake. I made this last night in anticipation for the dinner that I'm hosting on Thursday. I definitely modified the recipe from the last time I made it with Jessica. I think folding in the egg whites last time made it too dry and bread-y which was perfect for face cake. Also, instead of brewing chai in water I brewed it in heavy cream. {More butter, more fat - always a good modification!} It rose beautifully! I made the ginger-honey frosting which looks/tastes really good. The cake needs to be cut and frosted, but I'll do it the night before the dinner. Freezing it for now.
