I’m fond of mushrooms – my surname is also the name given to a type of mushroom, in fact. So, when someone suggested I cook something from Paper Mario for our ongoing cookery series, I pounced on the idea of making a shroom cake. It certainly seemed like a challenge, either way – mushrooms surely don’t belong in a sweet cake, do they?
Reader, they don’t. They really, really don’t. I found a recipe online – from a blog that said it tasted nice, no less – and followed it dutifully. That was a mistake. You can see just how awfully it turned out in the video below and, assuming you really hate yourself that much, you can find the recipe below that.
