Fiddleheads and Ferns

Stylized fiddleheads and ferns adorn this marble cake.  I’ve been trying to find more manly designs, as I have quite a few men and boys in my family to make cakes for.

This was my second attempt at a recipe from the famous Rose Levy Beranbaum (from Rose’s Heavenly Cakes).  I made it in some trepidation, as I have neither an accurate scale nor a thermometer capable of taking my butter’s temperature as she recommends!  Nonetheless, reports are that the cake turned out well (at least, that is what those who didn’t give up cake for Lent said).
