The Cake Slice Bakers August 2013: Maple Pecan Chiffon Cake

For August we were challenged to make a chiffon cake with brown sugar and brown butter icing. The cake and icing was simple enough to put together, I did end up with a bit of an issue with the icing being to thick, but really just the whole cake was off. No one in my family enjoyed it, and the icing was super sweet, so after a bite each the remaining cake went for chicken food.

Maybe next month



  1. Oh no Heather I am so sorry your cake didn't turn out well. This one seems to be a hit or miss one.
    It looks really nice though!!
    And like you said... next month.

  2. Sorry to hear it didn't turn out well Heather, I look forward to next month's bake from you :)

  3. Lucky chickens! The cake looks good.

  4. Lucky Chickens indeed! Pity your family didn't like it. I wasn't a fan of the frosting but I really loved the cake! Hazel x

  5. Oh Heather....your cake looks really delicious! (though I didn't like it either!). But I bet the chickens loved it! I have my fingers crossed for next month, too!

  6. Oh dear, your cake looks FAB though. Just can't think of why you and your family did not like this at all. At least it did not go to waste! I like both the cake and icing though. Fingers crossed for the next cake!

  7. I am so sorry that this wasn't a hit with your family. Although mine didn't turn out exactly how I would like it - the icing was a bit strange, it was still eaten. Mind you it did get eaten by my daughters and their friends. Of course, teenagers are not know for having picky palates ;).

  8. Im so sorry the cake didnt work for you. I hate when a recipe is wasted :(


Thanks for stopping by!
