Pre-lunchtime, post-breakfast, cake is almost surely on your mind. (Right?) Evidently, it’s on ours. Spurred on by The Kitchn, we’re thinking about cakes with oddities today -- cakes that wear strange, old-fashioned outfits and cakes that have carbonation, but still promise to taste good all the same. They’ll make your go-to chocolate seem downright plain. 

First, The Kitchn presents us with an essay about the tumultuous re-creation of a family classic, in which the author struggles with a boiled icing. And, just a little before that, they bring us a cookbook recommendation for a Champagne cake. The former seems slightly merciless, but we might give it a go. You know us: we’re always up for a challenge

I love boiled icing, I posted a recipe for Texas Chocolate Cake that was handed down from my Mom. The boiled icing turns out perfectly every time. http://www.food52.com/recipes...
