i like to bake. but that's no secret. this cake came about because of one very overripe banana in our fruit basket and an old pin on my "to make and eat" board on pinterest.
i am not too shabby a baker, but there are some things that completely elude me. one of those things is how to properly frost a cake. "ara jane, why don't you try a crumb coat," you might say! and to that i would reply, "what's a crumb coat?"
i am kidding (just a little) but i really do prefer cakes that are more rustic in appearance. you know, big puffs of buttercream and wonky, sloppy layers. it is a fact that they taste better. is there anyone out there who actually likes the taste of fondant? yeah, i thought not.
of course, now i have an entire cake in my house with no where to take it and no one to eat it except me and c. (like that's a bad thing.)
oh, and this really might be the best banana cake ever. no wait, it might just be the best cake ever, it's that good.
