cea and I always manage to get ourselves into exciting cooking messes, this time involving some intriguing vegetable-inspired cake recipes — so, we had a bake-off.

dsd’s featured vegetable: tomatillos (ok, maybe they’re fruit like tomatoes, but so be it), introduced as a sweet sauce for chipotle seasoned chocolate cake

while beets were an exciting contender, the tomatillo sauce recipe is going in the books as a real keeper.  check out both recipes: beet cake and chipotle chocolate cake with tomatillo sauce topping.  we were so disappointed in the poor showing of the beets that cea tried again with the beet cake, but it still came out underwhelming…suggestions?
