So, yesterday I posted a Tiger Tail cake recipe that was based on MY favorite ice cream flavor, growing up - Tiger Tail Ice Cream. Today's recipe is based on my HUSBAND's favorite ice cream flavor when he was a kid!
An interesting thing about marrying a man from a different country is that you can expose each other to all sorts of new things. While he'd never heard of "Tiger Tail" ice cream, I'd never heard of HIS favorite ice cream flavor - Spumoni. Of course I had to use it as inspiration for a cake flavor!
This recipe is definitely one of the more labor, cost, and ingredient intensive cake recipes featured in my newest cookbook, " Evil Cake Overlord"... but don’t be discouraged! It's not difficult to make, so just follow through the steps - I guarantee you’ll be rewarded for the effort!
This cake has received one of the most bizarre compliments I've ever heard, as well as one of the most flattering:
Upon presenting it to an expert mold maker (more on him in a coming blog entry!), he informed me that I was "the future Ex Mrs" mold maker! LOL!
I had given him a large chunk of cake, left from when I made my taster slices for the Food & Wine Czar of Cakes competition. I may not have won, but I was floored when Dara, one of the judges, declared that I could open a cake shop in Brooklyn based on the strength of this flavor alone. SCORE!!
Whether you're looking to open such a bakery, impress your future ex husband, or just make a fantastic cake for the people you love, this flavor is a definite winner.
