crossing the finish line

Making a princess…princess cake

In small ways I find myself doing things that I watched my mom do as I grew up. Saturday mornings were her time to bake and cook all sorts of dishes for the upcoming week. I spent my Saturday morning preparing a dessert for a dinner party tonight.

Swedish Prinsesstårta

Less than a month ago, I joined The Daring Kitchen’s group of Daring Bakers. Each month a baking challenge is given to the group. This month’s challenge was Swedish princess cake. It was a challenge for me.

May’s Daring Baker Challenge:

Here’s my adventures in making this dome cake: 

Making the custard

Making the spongecake

And the final product….which received rave reviews!!
