Fabulous & Frugal Fun: Just a hint....

Last year when celebrating The Find: The Housing Works Book of Decorating With Thrift Shop Treasures, Flea Market Objects, and Flea Market Objects at my pal Ruth Handel's Mar Vista, California home, we came up with the idea of serving a "Hint 'O Mint" chocolate cake.

Quite simple to make, it's a basic chocolate devils food cake (Yes, you may use a mix if you like), covered in butter cream with just the slightest tinge of peppermint extract and a couple of drops of food coloring. Finally, it's garnished with York Peppermint Patties, of course. Take care when tinting your butter cream, because more than a couple of dainty drops will quickly turn your "hint" into an all out declaration!
