OMG! You are so wonderful to use E Jean Carroll's story to re-create a favorite cake! I'm going to make this, after I obtain things like milk and cream, and I'm going to pay attention to the maternal-like nag because ... that is so kind of you. And as for "our E Jean" well, I believe that she was intimately invaded against her will and she deserves double the amount of punitive and compensatory damages. Love to both of you extraordinary women!
Can I have a slice?
Wow, this cake looks wonderful, will try it and share. Mom made a chocolate custard cake for my birthday. She’d melt the chocolate squares in a double boiler top then add to the batter. She died before we could talk about it, had no idea where the recipe was till I opened a recipe book my just deceased sister had made for me - and there was the recipe. I think it’s finally time to try making that cake. Thanks for what you do, Marissa. Blessings to you and E Jean both.
I'm so happy so happy so happy!!! Wish I could give E Jean and her whole legal team a giant hug and a THANK YOU and CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!! Cake looks neat too :)
I’ve been looking for a white cake recipe and none of them looked appealing but THIS one looks like a winner and I am thrilled to be able to bake a cake in solidarity to celebrate E Jean!
If any occasion calls for cake, this one does! Happy judgment day (not THAT judgment day) to E. Jean Carroll, and to all of us who have been waiting for even a taste of judgment (but no cake) to land at the feet of you know who!
Freaking fabulous! Aww <3 Congratulations E. Jean! The truth is neither Liberal or Conservative, the truth is the truth.
What a way to celebrate the courageous E. Jean Carroll. I am making these as cupcakes and delivering to my many women friends.
The fact that it took the jury less than 3 hours to reach unanimity not only on the verdict but on the amount of damages is even more delicious than this cake - though the cake sounds truly wonderful even to this lover of dark chocolate.
Thanks to E. Jean & the anonymous jurors who thought it more likely than not that the perpetrator did it. B/c this was not a criminal case. the jury did not have to find beyond a shadow of a doubt. judge recommended that the jurors remain anonymous for a long time.
This sounds delish. I was all ready to give it a go but I’m short on eggies. How did that happen? Oh I know - I’ve been too busy celebrating E Jeans victory. Yay!
Applause, applause for E Jean Carroll and the result! Love to you, Marissa, for this recipe. Sentimental attachments to our childhood cakes loom large for many of us. I loved yellow cake with chocolate frosting (though my mother’s cakes usually leaned perilously like a Disney cartoon!). My daughter’s favourite has always been marble cake with chocolate frosting and butterfly decoration.
What is yours?
Looks delicious. Will bake and enjoy this in celebration for E Jean. So happy for her!
Such a wonderful post! Am so very happy for E. Jean and her legal team to have achieved some justice. Extraordinary.
I’ll make this soon. But I’m confused about the pans...the recipe says you’ll use 2 pans...you say there are 3 different pan sizes you could use. Could you use 2 round cake pans?
OMG! This is amazing!! So happy for E Jean. I need this cake!
Ugh. What I would give to taste my childhood birthday cake again. My grandma's old fashioned yellow cake, chocolate frosting. Plus she decorated it with Snoopy & Woodstock so... hard to beat.
