My husband bought me a $5.oo book printed in the UK called Cakes & Cake Decorating (Angela Nilsen, Sarah Maxwell & Janice Murfitt) I had some doubts because the book was so cheap but I’ve made several recipes from this book and to my surprise they were very good.
I have 2 recipes out of it I’d like to try. One “Upside-down Pear & Ginger Cakes” calls for stem ginger and you also use the syrup from the stem ginger. Does anyone know where I can find stem ginger in Canada? So far I’ve only been able to find crystalized candied ginger.
The second recipe “Cinnamon Apple G?teau” calls for both low fat soft cheese and also fromage frais (which I know means fresh cheese). What is the American equivalent to those two cheeses?
