This cake is called Daffodil cake because it is yellow and white. You are supposed to drop the two different colored batters into the pan so that when it comes out it looks kinda like a daffodil, hence the name. I’m not sure I succeeded in this matter, because you can’t really tell there are two colors. But it was yummy – a lime angel food cake.
I made this one along with a repeat of the Cherry Chip Cake with Cherry Buttercream (this time with the correct kind of cherries) for a dear friend’s wedding reception. It was a backyard wedding, with potluck-style food, so of course I brought cake. I forgot to take a picture of the other cake but it turned out lovely despite my discovery of needing a new food processor.
Ian and I shared a piece of each, and I think ONE other person also had a piece of the cherry cake. Other than that it was all still there (because there was other wedding cake and I don’t think anyone noticed my cakes because they were on the wrong table) when we were ready to leave so I took it to a friends house who was celebrating their 40th birthday literally around the corner. Once it was set up with the food there, it was gone in seconds. That made me happy 🙂
