How to Make My Grandmother's FROSTED GINGER CREAMS

Step-by-Step

  • 1Cream together butter and sugar. Add eggs. Beat until light and fluffy. Add molasses. Blend in.
  • 2Sift together flour, ginger, cloves, cinnamon and salt.
  • 3Add baking soda to water.
  • 4Add dry ingredients and water to egg mixture alternatively.
  • 5Bake at 350 degrees in a jelly roll pan for 25 minutes or until cake tests done. Cool cake before frosting.
  • 6To make frosting add brown sugar, milk and butter to a saucepan. Bring to a boil. Remove from heat and add powdered sugar to thicken. Add 1 teaspoon vanilla.
    Frost the cake immediately while frosting is warm. Spread as you pour. Frosting sets fast and is hard to spread otherwise. I can not see why you can not frost while the cake is still warm. It might make it easier! Just a tip.
