The Walnut Variation: A CakebyAliwaks

WHO: Aliwaks is a longtime Food52er from Philadelphia. WHAT: A stunner of a cake -- full stop. HOW: Bake two cakes with meringue on top of them; whip some cream; stack. Watch your dinner party go silent. WHY WE LOVE IT: This cake is a total show-stopper. It’s dramatic and showy, and it tastes that way too: Deep from brown sugar and walnuts and lightly spiced, you’ll want to make this for every occasion, ever. We already do.
