I was watching Sharon's video on bc and was looking through some others and I found this one for a strawberry cake...




I just thought it was exceptionally hilarious and had to share!

Well I guess some people out there don't know how to make a box cake mix and use canned frosting. I particularly enjoyed her torting technique!

I kept expecting it to be a joke at the end. Sadly, I don't think it was.

Oh my goodness! My 12 yr old son was over my shoulder watching this and about fell over. He has watched me bake and decorate cakes and looked at me and said "Is this woman serious Mom? Can I tape you baking/decorating a cake and send it to her?"

Seriously? icon_eek.gif The cake looked awful and that hair bothers me. I have hair longer than hers but you wouldn't catch me in the kitchen without it being in a ponytail. That's just nasty. Sadly this isn't the first "bad cake" video that I've seen on youtube. icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

I can't stop laughing.

Did anyone else read the credits at the end?

Her name was listed with the title Chef

and

there was another name listed as supporting actor?????????????? I didn't see anyone else, guess he had a really small part.

Can't decide if I liked the torting or the frosting best. I did love when she shouted "Done!" and on the left side there was no frosting at all.

I am so glad that she showed me how to torte properly I guess I wasted my money on my Agbay!!

Out go the baking strips and the flower nails - hell who needs them when I can get a great level cake like that one. And no more Indydeb's or Sugar Shack BC - canned frosting from now on - much cheaper and a lot less work! You bet I can whip up that cake, bake, torte, fill and ice in an hour. No more hours of prep work for me!!

That hair was driving me nuts!

I must admit, I like the idea of using strawberry nectar. I've not seen it in my local grocery stores but if I can find it at a specialty shop around here I'm totally going to try it. My OH looooooooovvves strawberry and I bet that would really take a strawberry cake up a few notches.
But, um, papaya nectar or whatever else she said doesn't seem like it would add much strawberry flavor. icon_confused.gif

The rest of the video kind of made me want to weep, though.

Ai-yi-yi...I love that they cut away really fast when she destroyed the top part of the layer she was trying to cut in half. It was taken away never to be seen again...

If your grocery store has a Latin food aisle, check there for strawberry nectar. It might not be what you're imagining though, when we buy it, it's a thick, sugary drink that's only part fruit juice.

~instead of the strawberry nectar maybe you could use 1/4 of this, I would just reduce the sugar, or leave it out.

Ingredients:
4 cups strawberries, sliced
1 cup white sugar
8 cups cold water
1 lime, cut into 8 wedges (optional)
8 fresh mint sprigs (optional)
Directions:
1. In a medium bowl, mix together sliced strawberries, sugar, and 1 cup of water. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for 4 hours. 2. Remove the strawberry mixture from the refrigerator and pour into a blender. Blend on high until smooth. Pour the blended berry mixture through a wire mesh strainer set over a large mixing bowl; discard the pulp and seeds. 3. Add the remaining 7 cups cold water to the pureed strawberries and mix well. Place the Aqua de Fresa in the refrigerator to chill for several hours or pour over ice and serve immediately. Garnish with lime slices or mint leaves.

Did you show your husband the video? Maybe it would give him a new appreciation of your cakes icon_twisted.gif
