Let’s Review the July Baking Challenge
July 2020 Sally’s Baking Challenge Recipe: Fresh Berry Cream Cake
I challenged you to make a lovely towering berry cake this past month! I know cake decorating can be intimidating, but this recipe proves that you don’t need complicated assembly techniques to make a beautiful layer cake. Using this method of decorating, there were so many delicious looking creations. Lemon cakes, 9 inch cakes, 6 inch cakes, strawberry cakes, pistachio cakes, white cakes, and so many more. The combination of light cake, fresh berries, and whipped cream is a summertime dessert staple and I hope you make this many more times in the future, too!
One of my favorite recipe reviews came from reader Andrea:
“I made this with my 3 year old and my whole family loved it! I made lemon curd with the leftover egg yolks and added a thin layer on the cakes (as Sally suggested) and it was an amazing addition. Highly recommend this recipe, I’m looking forward to making (and eating) it again and trying different varieties.”
Giveaway winner for July is Kristin and she has been notified. 🙂
