Beet Cake

Yesterday my dear pal Lindsay send me a link to a most wondrous video. Not only is it practical (it is the recipe for a beet cake) but it is also a masterful work of art. Seriously. Take a moment and absorb:

So? Are you dying to make beet cake as much as I am? I wonder how this recipe would taste with spelt flour....hmm...well here's a link to the recipe if you're feeling adventurous. Happy last day of June!


  1. A totally stunning video! Wish my baking looked like that...

  2. My mom says that I'm just "taken with the video" and that the cake would be "incredibly" rich. Isn't everybody down with that much butter AND brown sugar?

  3. I don't think I will be trying that one out. Beets in a cake - yuck!

  4. I'm confused. Are you supposed to use pickled beets or just normal, cooked beets? I love how they melted the chocolate, and the look of the film, but I don't want to make the cake. I also wondered if those little owl and squirrel figurines are salt and pepper shakers!
