An Artist Bakes the Ginger Cake



I don't have an artistic molecule in my body but I'm a great appreciator. My friend Stella -- with whom God was generous with artistic gifts -- baked this cake soon after I posted Sylvia Thompson's recipe. I adore the way she finished it, converting the suggested dusting of confectioner's sugar into an elegant row of white stripes and contrasting the cake's rich brown color with the green tabletop. Gorgeous.

That is really gorgeous. Doing a design like stripes would never, sadly, have ever occurred to me. How wonderful. And the ginger cake recipe rocks, too. I want to make it, and I'm not even a cake eater (but I do adore ginger).
