How to Make My Grandmother's FROSTED GINGER CREAMS

Step-by-Step

  1. Cream together butter and sugar. Add eggs. Beat until light and fluffy. Add molasses. Blend in.
  2. Sift together flour, ginger, cloves, cinnamon and salt.
  3. Add baking soda to water.
  4. Add dry ingredients and water to egg mixture alternatively.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees in a jelly roll pan for 25 minutes or until cake tests done. Cool cake before frosting.
  6. To 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.
