Fraisier Cake

Have fun giving your creation a name and please describe your recipe.

Bridal Shower Fraisier Cake. I had never seen or heard of this cake, but it's so impressive; it would make a beautiful centerpiece for a bridal shower. Next time I'll make more marzipan decorations.

Tell us about your creation's final texture after baking. Are you happy with it?

It was great overall, but I think I overcooked the creme mouselline a little too much… it was a little stiff instead of being light and fluffy like I imagined.

Detail how you added a Wisconsin twist to your flavors or presentation.

I looked ahead and made this cake while local strawberries from Rice Lake and Shell Lake were in season. Of course the eggs and dairy products were all local, too.

How did you do?

Absolutely lovely.
