Hello, the banana cake part turns out really good. I have trouble, however, at the part when adding the butter. It starts to curdle... is this due to the temperature difference between the mixture and butter? I tried twice and got the same result. But your icing turned out amazing, very nice.

First of all, I think you did a superb job frosting the cake. I came across your blog when looking for ways to decorate a cake using fresh bananas (I've got a banana fosters cake I make that I'm trying to make pretty and I was looking for ideas). Google picked you up on bananas and cake - the caramel is a coincidence. Anyway, I thought how pretty your cake was in the thumbnail which is why I clicked in the first place.

Secondly, it's time consuming but successful - when I didn't have time to do a crumb coat I used a piping bag to pipe the basic layer of frosting around the cake, up the sides of the cake. Slowly but surely you get it done. Then, with a very delicate touch you smooth it out, removing some of the icing that you've piped on. Anyway, it works very nicely and uses more frosting than your average icing job would. Just thought I'd mention it since you'd said you were TRYING to use all the frosting you could.

I just read your blog entry about my banana cake with caramel espresso frosting, and it really cracked me up--I think your cake is just beautiful and I'm thrilled that it was a hit at your meeting. Keep on baking!! Best, Tish B.

kevin,
It will be interesting to see what you do with the bananas. :)

jessy,
thanks!I feel better about that frosting now.

piggy,
yes! I enjoy making the frosting, feel like doing experiment in the lab. :p

anne,
same here, love her recipes.

terri,
hahaha, I think my effort was not wasted. The buttercream was delicious, but definitely not for daily consumption.

amanda,
I 100% agree.

happy cook,
thanks! the piping is not as good as yours! ;p

mevrouw cupcake,
thanks!

patricia,
thanks Sweetie!I wish you stayed next door.

cecilia,
let me know how it works for you if you try it.

deborah,
thanks! But I don't think mine is miles better than yours!

cakewardrobe,
kindergarten handwriting is the essence of my piping skills. luckily the recipients didn't seem to mind that. :)

dwiana,
thanks for the well wishes, i will try my best to be happy in the packing and moving process. chocolate helps.

aran,
I want to be your neighbor too. I suspect I would lost the motivation to bake if I stayed close to you, since there's always desserts around!

Helene,
YES! We are going to be real close after the move. :)

Moving sucks but in your case it makes me happy because we are going to be real close....just a skip and a hope from Charleston lady!!

I usually have a pretty good hand but trust me, when it comes to frosting, I'm like a kindergartener writing letters for the first time. People would surely forget about the appearance once they take a bite into that delicious looking cake of yours! :)

I think that the cake looks yummy, especially with all of that frosting. Once I get some bananas to stay in my house long enough to really ripen, I'll have to try out this recipe.
