New This Month

This extraordinary cake is comprised of two layers: one, a cinnamon-spiced carrot-and-walnut cake; the other, a zucchini cake flavored with ground ginger. Cream-cheese icing creates a snowy landscape with marzipan vegetable plots.

    I used to have this the April 2000 issue of Living and , in fact, I made the big sheet version of the cake. I want to create it again, but gave the magazine away years ago. Now I can't find the instructions for making the vegetables anywhere. Can someone help me please? I want to make it for a community festival this weekend. Thanks!

    This is an adorable idea but where does one get the vegetables and the fence? All I have near me is I Party and they don't sell such things I don't believe.

    This cake was so much fun to make for Easter. Everyone in my family was able to help mold the vegetables, cute the fencing and assemble the cake. Once placed on the dinner table, everyone was in love and had lots of questions about the edibility of the vegetables, fence, and rocks. We made the rocks also out of marzipan and added a couple of darling spotted rabbits in the garden! So beautiful.

    I won first prize at our office bake-off with a variation on this cake. Instead of a spring garden, I made a pumpkin patch. The entire family enjoyed fashioning pumpkins out of marzipan for the top of the cake.
