The Cake Slice: Chai Cake with Honey-Ginger Cream


Another great pick by the The Cake Slice Bakers! Chai Cake with Honey-Ginger Cream seems so straight-forward and simple but it tasted so much more delicious than it sounds. I love chai tea and was looking forward to having some in cake form.

The cake used milk infused with chai tea plus an addition of some cinnamon and cardamom which made it a nicely spiced cake. Grinding those cardamom pods sure made the kitchen smell terrific. Even more so while the cakes were baking in the oven.


And no whipped cream frosting this time! This month's cake used icing that combined butter and cream cheese with honey and freshly-grated ginger. The Honey-Ginger Cream looked and had the consistency of condensed milk but tasted just as good if not better.

To go with the Indian-theme of the cake, I used some candy-coated fennel seeds and sprinkled them around the base of the cake and around up on top to give it a little color. I hope it distracts you from my horrible icing job! :)

My icing job sucked too! I didn't even read the directions that said to just let thet the frostin drip down the sides like icicles. It might've looked halfway decent if I didn't try to cover the whole thing with icing! Lol. I love your decorations though! :D

SiHaN said...

It was hard to decorate with this icing as is... it was very thin.
