Spiced Ginger Roll
The recipe says to trim each end on a sharp angle. And I love the instruction that comes next: "Save the ends for a baker's treat".
It's certainly not a dark secret that I'm terribly fond of Anything Ginger. I'm sure I could take care of this entire cake myself. But I'll share, because that's much more fun.
