After seeing my attempt at the heart cake in February, the Man decided I needed to try my hand at a strawberry-lemonade cake. I followed pretty much the same process, making my layers out of lemon cake and making a few strawberry cuppies for the filling.
|If you notice, there is a can of cream cheese frosting in the background-- no home-made frosting for this cake. I was baking at about 1:00 in the morning, and "from scratch" was no longer in my vocabulary!|
I added a quick crumb coat. It also helps to hold an extra-moist cake like this together.
The outside wasn't too pretty, I was playing around with a new technique and ran out of frosting. Besides, I had a few hungry gamers to feed.
It turned out alright. It could use some refining, but not too bad for throwing something together out of leftover batter.
The "menfolk" seemed to enjoy since there wasn't much left the next day. Sometimes, that's better than a perfectly frosted, beautiful cake anyway!
