It was my stepdad's birthday this week, so I made him a sweet potato cake with toasted marshmallow filling and brown sugar cinnamon buttercream. The cake had bits of crystallized ginger folded into the batter, and the filling was vanilla buttercream with real toasted marshmallows (toasted under the broiler) folded in, so you got crispy toasted marshmallow bits in every bite. The cake was moist and spicy, the filling sweet, and the brown sugar cinnamon buttercream was just the right touch to finish it off! I made royal icing pansies to go on top. I was still very tired from my hospital stay, so the decorating job was not my best, as it wore me out to do it, but I was happy to be able to bake again!
