Fabulous & Frugal Fun: Into the Tunnel Part II

Last week I promised you a video of my making the retro-tabulous "Tunnel of Fudge" cake, and, after much it is. You may notice that I couldn't help but use the B-52's Cake as a soundtrack, even though I've used it to enhance the making of a pineapple upside-down cake once before.

While this cake, in all truthfulness, did have trouble coming out of its pan -- and I got lots of suggestions on how to prevent this -- it was delicious, and the recipe is available on the Nordic Ware site here. Julia Child gave some very good advice to home cooks: never apologize to guests for what you perceive as a mistake. And while this cake had some cracks and dings, it was delicious right down to each and every crumbly bit!

Always Frugal, Always Fabulous!

The Elegant Thrifter
