This is my 3rd one of these cakes. Everybody seems to go crazy over it. I was not so pleased with the color of the brown. I added cocoa to some ivory buttercream. The taste was good but the color was off, I should have just made some chocolate frosting, but I was crunched for time. I am really going to have to work on my time management. As, I said everyone goes nuts over this cake, so I just graciously accepted the compliments. But, I know it was not up to my standards, and I know that we can be our own worst critics.
BTW, the large round in vanilla poundcake with homemade strawberry filling and the smaller round half ball is strawberry cake.
Thanks for looking, cakeymom
