of the Mind: Cupcakes and Technology

This cake was made 10/2006 for Joe's birthday. It uses the Vert-vert cake recipe favored by Claude Monet, with a few modifications. I eschewed fondant and stuck with a buttercream. The cake came out incredibly dense, which madame manga from the LJ Community bakery tells me comes from faulty directions. European spongecake is a tricky beast (no leaveners besides lots of fussy, frothy eggs). However, I was told it was quite delicious (I hate pistachio, so I didn't even try it). An ambitious project, I would rate this cake a 4/10 and highly caution anyone trying to use the recipe as its written.
