my mom has a copy of all cakes considered. a year's worth of cakes tried and tested by the all things considered staff. for mums' bday, i made the naughty senator cake. basically a marbled rum grasshopper.
the mums has also chartreuse plates and depending on the lighting, are basically the same color as the peppermint part of the cake. definitely worth trying again [i copied down the recipe before i left] and maybe with one of the cookbook variations - chocolate/vanilla, choco/red raspberry, maybe lemon/choco with my lemon vodka? and with dark chocolate cocoa... mmm the possibilities.
