Mint Chocolate Chip Cake Friday, January 31, 2020, 09:12 PM
Meredith made a Mint Chocolate Chip cake from Cakes by Courtney (LOCAL). She followed the cake recipe and even the main butter cream one but subbed Crème de Menthe for the mint extract (which, by the way, the amount of mint extract in the original sounds crazy). That gave it a nice flavor and a nice color. She also added two drops of teal gel food coloring. She also added 2 tsp (ish) of espresso powder.
Her only note for next time is that the recipe has you set aside too much buttercream for in between layers and leaves you without enough to do a good job coating the cake. So next time, either set aside less and/or make extra butter cream.
It was very good! The cake was super moist and the mint flavor was subtle but tasty. It was also very pretty though took a lot of work to place all of the chocolate chips
