Recipe: Chocolate Gingerbread Cake with Cream Cheese Cardamom Icing
It’s Tara’s birthday today, so I baked her a cake based on this outstanding recipe. It was totally fantastic and I regret nothing.
My adaptation, respectfully: four eggs, not one; two cups of sugar, not half (what are you, a health nut? It’s cake), a cup of molasses and no Lyle’s Golden Syrup, and a cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips.
“God knows we’ve all crashed a party before, but the Salahis went way too far. Lying to get into a White House dinner?

Dunham didn’t like one of Peanut’s first jokes, about how another reality-TV star, Kim Kardashian, would pass gas on a baby if it meant getting some publicity. “We’ve got to get away from the poop jokes,” he said.
McCall spoke up: “It’s not really a poop joke.” He was making a sincere, semantic point, but not too assertively. Dunham didn’t answer directly; he told a long story about an audition he did in the 90s. Eventually he said: “Just come up with something different about Kim Kardashian, that’s all. Something about her butt or her boobs.”
