Wisconsin Chiffon Cake

Give your dessert a clever name — and tell us about your recipe.

Chocolate Chiffon Cake with Maple Buttercream & Espresso Ganache

What was the biggest surprise during your baking journey? Did you use any unconventional approaches? What did you learn along the way? Tell us about it!

I learned that I eat too much chocolate when I bake with it.

How did you add a Wisconsin twist to your flavors or decoration?

I used Stillmank Perky Porter (Green Bay) in the cake batter, Wagner's maple syrup (Peshtigo) in the buttercream, and Steep & Brew Italian Espresso (Madison) in the ganache.

How did you do?

Rocked it.
