This month's cake is what I would call our first real "cake" it's a true layer cake and frosting. I made mine early knowing that it would be perfect for Easter but figuring that since all but one cake in this book has been a flop for me that I didn't want to take that chance. The cake had good flavor, but it was best eaten the day of or next day as it became very dry, The frosting had good flavor but it didn't spread well, as you can tell in my pictures. Either way I would consider this a partial success just because it was a layer cake and I didn't take one bite and toss it in the trash.
Now to a bit of news. All of us at the cake slice bakers have been having issues with this book and many are not baking because of that. The powers at be got together and decided that instead of everyone baking the same cake each month instead they would get to choose which cake to bake out of the 4 chosen for the month. This will only pertain to this book and when we start our next book in November the rules will go back to the way they were before.
I am hoping to have some very exciting not having to do with anything baking related news to share with you all soon.....
See you next month
