I liked the taste of this cake. I enjoy ginger and I, of course, enjoy chocolate. I struggled a bit with the icing for this. It was extremely runny and when I poured it over the top of the cake it ran over the sides and pooled on the plate. I poured it back into the bowl to cool. Now, it is cold in my house, 49 degrees to be exact. You'd think that stuff would have thickened up a bit. No luck. I ended up leaving the messy, thin icing as it was.
I apologize for the messy picture for this post. It was a rough and cold morning at 179 and I didn't have the patience to take a decent picture.
