White Chocolate Sweet Potato Cake

Martha Stewart’s White Chocolate Sweet Potato Cake

Sweet potatoes?  In  a cake?  Well, why not?  You can put pumpkins, carrots, and zucchini in cake.  You can make pie out of sweet potatoes.  It’s not as weird as it sounds.

This cake is very similar to pumpkin cake.  The lightness of the white chocolate whipped cream frosting is a good counterpart to earthy, dense, and moist cake.  I chose to use pecans instead of the macadamia nuts this recipe calls for, and dusted the cake with cinnamon.
