This time I’ll be quick: three factors contributed to this epic cake which just, JUST might be almost as good as the St Louis gooey butter cake.
One: I had some marzipan left over in the freezer from Christmas time. What to do? Marzipan buns no doubt - but I also thought about Simnel cake, willing the time to seem closer to Easter than to Christmas and yes, marzipan layer in a cake, why not.
Two: The Weather Man really, really, REALLY loves glace cherries. I think they’re disgusting personally but the things we do for love…
Three: buttermilk cake mix is the kind of cake a two year old with their arms tied behind their back could whip up, blindfold. Note: this is not endorsing child abuse.
Result: stunning. Just try. And don’t you DARE use shop bought marzipan!
