I Heart Cake

I sat here last week probably much like I am doing right now.  Except, instead of Project Runway I was probably watching something to do with food.  Somehow I got it in my head that I wanted a piece of this cake.  Actually, I just mentioned that I wanted a piece of tres leaches cake and this was the recipe I was forwarded.  It looked good but I know I can trust anything that Erin endorses.

It’s been a long time since I’ve had a piece of tres leches cake.  It’s not like it’s a cake that I’ve had many times before but the last time, at Rosa Mexicana, certainly made an impact.  I wanted to recreate it a little so I thought a little dice of mango would be the ticket.  Unfortunately you can’t really think mango and have it be ready to eat instantly.  I diced it up but it didn’t add anything to the cake because it was under-ripe.

Essentially, this ended up a dry run.  I’ve never made a sponge cake but now I know I can do it and this one tastes pretty darned good.  I’ll make another one as soon as there’s some fresh fruit at the market.  Peaches, mmm.

It’s been a long time since I’ve had a patron margarita too.  That’s another tragedy I have to make right.  I have some thoughts about that too.
