Want a nice no fail strawberry cake recipe? - Page 2

post #16 of 32

Yortma,

I made your strawberry cake this past weekend. It was absolutely delicious!!!! I followed the first recipe you provided. I may try the other version next time for a less dense of a cake.

Thank you very much!!!!

Quality, not quantity...

That was my progression as well.  The more recent version is lighter and less dense, but with the same flavor.  Thanks for the feedback!

What fillings did you use inbetween the layers for your neopolitan cake?

I used strawberry filling between the white and strawberry cake layers, and Toba Garret's chocolate buttercream between the white and chocolate cake layers.

I finally made your strawberry cake. It is wonderful! The freeze dried strawberries added a wonderful texture and fresh flavor. Thanks for sharing!

The first recipe lists baking powder, but the directions say baking soda. Just want to confirm which one you used?

Sorry about that, good pick up!   It is baking powder.

Please refrain from posting the mixing instructions.  Ingredients can't be copyrighted, so those are OK, but you cannot post the directions even if you change a few words here and there.  We mods indiscriminately delete mixing instructions because we don't have the time to verify copyright on everything everyone posts.

 

If the original recipe has been posted an a blog or another website, please hyperlink to it.  

 

Thanks.

This was my own recipe - developed over much sweat, trial and error.  It is nowhere else.  If anyone wants it, pm me.  icon_sad.gif

For the life of me, I cannot figure out what I did wrong. I love the recipe title, No Fail Strawberry Cake, but I wasn't at all successful.

 

I sifted, accurately measured, had ingredients at room temp, beat the required minutes, correct oven temp and times.... Goodness, I followed everything like I was back in my chemistry classes in college. I even used berries from TJ's, although I have subsequently found them available at WalMart. However, I needed a long cake for a base and used a 9x13 pan. To be on the safe side, I even used 2 flower nails, something I've never used for a sheet cake.

 

The taste is great, but the cake is flat and dense. I'm planning on torting it which will give it a little more height, but I am glad that this one will be for a family birthday, not for sale this time.

 

Are there any hints any of you all would have to assure better results next time?

If you have knowledge, let others light their candles on it.

Never fear shadows. They simply mean there's a light shining somewhere nearby.
