Here we are with this month’s Daring Bakers challenge- Perfect Party Cake from the adorable Dorie Greenspan’s “Baking From My Home to Yours.” This is Dorie’s ninth book and it is jam-packed with lusciousness.
For my filling, I used a jar of homemade strawberry jam that my sweet Aunt B made a couple of weeks ago and was nice enought to share with me. I filled and frosted it with buttercream and everything was easy as
pie cake! I crowned it with fresh strawberries, applied coconut to the sides and candied lemon and violets to really tart it up! This is a super easy cake, quickly made and so lovely for a party! Hope you try it and thanks to Morven and Dorie! There are over 800 DBs now so grab a cup of whatever and check them out here!
