TWD~Berry Surprise Cake


This was a Berry good lesson in following directions! I did not do a Berry good job! The Surprise is that I am Berry bad at egg ribbons and egg diva cakes. I'm Berry MAD!
Actually, Im not mad... but just really disappointed.
I think I might turn this into Berry Surprise Cup Cakes.
My cake came out flat as a pancake. I was warned that it would by countless TWD bakers. I used a 9inch Springform, thinking I could defy gravity.

So with my pancake, I decided to be resourceful and skip hollowing out the cake (because I physically couldn't) and thus just spreading the filling on top.
The filling was delish, after adding more sugar. The berries in the filling were sublime. The berries and filling on top of the cake... YUCK!
My cake tasted like thick eggs! I do not like thick egg cake, Sabro I am!
It looked pretty though.

My only hope is to make some more filling, salvage the berries and whip up some cupcakes or something? I have no clue. Because I REFUSE to serve this to anyone!


Whoa is me.

Peggy said...

Aw, you tried and that's what counts. My first one looked just like yours. This was a difficult cake in my opinion. But next week you and I will reign I'm sure! LOL
(And your cake looks like it would taste good even if it didn't rise up!) And your blog is cute. :)

It looks good with the raspberries and filling. Too bad the cake didn't turn out.

Sometimes I wonder to myself "What was Dorie thinking?". Doris would never give out a crap recipe!

Erin said...

It looks really pretty. But what a bummer when we expect it to do one thing and it does exactly the opposite.

Melissa said...

I'll bet it still tastes pretty good though. You could have served it to me if I hadn't known what it was supposed to look like, and I would have thought - "what a unique cake!" So go ahead and serve it to someone - they won't know the difference, and I bet it's good!

Mine raised about as high as yours did.

I don't think I whipped it long enough.

Heidi Ashworth said...

Ah, you coulda just said Look how pretty! and none of us would have been the wiser. But I like your berry mad comments, so it's all good.

Well, that certainly stinks. The berries and the filling are good alone, though. By the way, enjoy LOST!
