I have a question about the recipe "Peppermint Hi-Hat Cake" from Erin McDowell. Can I use something else instead of coconut oil for the glaze?
You can just make a simple ganache - like glaze instead using chocolate and heavy cream, but this magic shell style glaze really only works with coconut oil, it helps it set firm!
Hi Erin, your cake is beautiful. I cannot wait to try it. How do you recommend you slice it to keep the slices perfect?
Use a warm knife and you’ll be able to slice very cleanly and easily. Dip your knife in very hot water and wipe it clean with each slice you make!
Hi Erin! I made this cake last night and it is delicious! Unfortunately, it ended up more like a York peppermint patty because I just couldn’t get peaks on the egg whites! Any idea of what I could’ve done wrong?
