everything was delicious - especially the Mascarpone cream which I will be using for other baked goods. The cake was also delicious although I may have left it a tad too long in the oven & my ground ginger could have been younger! All in all it was great. Tks Madame Dodge ;0))- A Quebec cook
I made the whole dessert menu but this was hands down my favorite, esp the Mascarpone Cream. I could have eaten it all by itself. The cake had a wonderful ginger flavor and was very fragrant as well as moist. I made it ahead and kept it tightly wrapped at room temperature for five days prior to the party and it worked beautifully.
The cake was wonderful. Fairly easy to prepare - I am not a regular baker so it's probably easier for others that bake more ofter. The flavor mix was excellent and not overpowering and the texture was very light. I did not like the mascarpone cream. It seemed way to sweet for the cake. The recipe makes about double what you need. I'm not sure what I would have used instead but the cake was worth making again. Not an average sort of flavor but very light and delicious on a fall or spring day.
