I’m a beginner—this was only the third cake I’ve ever made—so I was happy with the results.  I read about Smith Island cakes in the Washington Post and wanted to try to make one.  I couldn’t find a recipe, so I used a yellow cake recipe and a chocolate icing recipe from America’s Test Kitchen.  If I were to do things over, I’d cut the baking time for each layer in half—they were too dry.  But it tasted quite good, so I was happy with it.

I’ve never tried to compress a picture file, so I hope it looks OK.
