We have a wonderful get-together in my neighborhood.
Eight lovely ladies come over once a month to share
thoughts, fun times and refreshments.
I always want to bake something special for them.
It was my time to host this get-together. I saw this lovely recipe on Pinterest for Key Lime Cake.
I adjusted the flour for high altitude.
Well, 17 hand squeezed limes later all three pans went
into the oven. I peeked in several times and it was
not only NOT rising, it resembled a sunken volcano!
I've made a bunch of cakes over the years and
this was by far the ugliest!
I tried to "glue" it together with icing but the more
I tired the more it looked like a Troll Lime Slime cake !
(It did taste wonderful if you didn't look at it!!)
Fortunately, I had all the ingredients for Strawberry Cake (Fresh or Frozen.)
You can get this great recipe at thecountrycook.com
I used an immersion blender to "smoosh" frozen strawberries.I also put "smooshed" strawberries in the icing between the layers.
I topped my icing with "glittered" sugar: 1/2 Cup sugar
+ food coloring-dried in a 350 oven and then crushed.
Sprinkled on top of icing.
I also "smooshed" about 2 more cups of strawberries and added a
little sugar. Before putting slice on the plate , it was drizzled over the plate.
Looks a lot better than the Troll Lime Slime Cake!
