I made this birthday cake for someone at work this week, subbing in prune puree for the oil, because I find oily cake yuck, and using, um, a full cup of chopped candied ginger. The oozey icing is tofutti/soy yogurt/ginger/icing sugar. Between the layers of cake there is lots of squishy orange marmalade with chopped up candied ginger. I wanted the cake to be ooey gooey so that everyone would have to lick their fingers and be not-grownup about eating it. There is also a picture of me doing the icing dance, since we all know that cakes end up being much more beautiful if they are made with love and dancing.
icing dance music: cole porter. you're the top.
