I’ve posted the beet cake before, and certainly I’ve made it tons of times. In part this is because thanks to the CSA, I always have the ingredients on hand. And in part, this is because of the astonishing goodness of the beet cake itself. As a friend put it, after tasting the cake, “I’ve been wasting my life.”
Usually, I frost it with a simple cream cheese, powdered sugar, and cream frosting, and call that good. This time, I decided to get all fancy, and divide the layers and add pudding to some as well. This was really tasty, but frankly, my advice is not to bother. Use really high quality chocolate in the cake, skip the extra pudding layer, and let the cake and cream speak for themselves.
That said, doesn’t this look like decadence itself?
