Grasshopper Cake

It’s time to go green! Party down! And get your drink on! This cake is a win for all of the above. 😉 So let’s sit back unwind and enjoy some St. Patrick’s Day festivities.

 Now, on to my latest obsession…. layer cakes. Well, I’m not sure three in two weeks makes an obsession, but it sure feels like it!   


Check out these other St. Patty’s inspired posts… ok, not really, but some are green and some have alcohol – #winning.


On a completely unrelated note, the cost of first class stamps is now $0.41 cents. The look on your cats face when she somehow magically gets them stuck to her – Priceless.

How long did you beat the frosting for? Did you continue using the paddle to beat the frosting? Mine did not turn fluffy at all, it seemed to stay kind of syrupy like it was in the sauce-pan and I'm not sure what happened.

Hey Andrea, I don't recall exactly how long I mixed it for, but I do remember it being a LOOOOONG time and feeling like it was never going to come together. Let me know how it came out!

I found your website via Pinterest and I am planning on making this cake for my husband's birthday this weekend. I was searching for the perfect recipe for the Thin Mints I've been hiding in the pantry! Quick question though....I only have 2 cake pans, and your recipe calls for 3. Can I make this in 2 cake pans and just have 2 thicker layers? Thanks in advance!

Hi Jessica! I am not a pro baker by any means! I would think you could bake this in two taller cake pans and adjust the time, or bake the 2, and just wait until the pan has cooled to repeat and bake the third layer. Please let me know how it turns out!
