Sky High?

January 19, 2009

Heidy gave me the incredible Sky High, over which I’d been salivating for many months, for Christmas.  Now I face a dilemma: which cake do I bake first?  Your input will be greatly appreciated, and I promise to post photos of the winning cake, once it’s done.


After a mammoth day of voting, the final tally is in…

And the winner is…


(Congratulations Kate)

Total votes:
Chai cake with honey-ginger cream  185 votes
Mocha cake with espresso drizzle     165 votes
Sour cream-chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting and chocolate-peanut butter glaze    14 votes

Analysis coming later, along with photos of the freshly baked Chai cake…. and don’t forget to check out tonight’s inauguration live blog.



  1. I can only vote for vegan cakes! Are any vegan?

    • It would be VERY easy to do a vegan version of the Peanut Butter cake- not too many adjustments needed at all.

  2. Wow. Those sound *really* tasty. I’m looking forward to the photos too.

  3. Sound great E! Can’t wait to see pics (and maybe try a slice!!)

  4. Woah!!!! That’s an amazing amount of votes! Ha! Last time I checked in Chai was on 40something!!! Yay for the Chai voters!!!!
    Happy cooking, Erin! I can’t wait to see the pics!

  5. Forget the photos, give me the cake!
