Berry Surprise Cake...Failure

Berry Surprise Cake

The recipe this week was for Berry Surprise Cake (pg 273-275) and I bombed it. The cake was an egg base and you had to whip it for a long time, which I did. I thought...the cake didn't rise at all so I just cut it up and made a huge one slice cake. The family didn't care for the flavor much and said that it wasn't very sweet. I used blueberries because they were on sale. It was a pretty cake but probably won't make it again. Unless I can perfect my egg whipping. ha ha! 

When I took the cake off the first plate it left the heart which was really cool given I had pipped icing hearts on the plate. Pretty neat huh.

Oh no! too bad it didn't work out for you. Love the heart impression it left.
