Baking Challenge

Hidden Design Cake

Give your cake a name based on the ingredients and decoration – and tell us about the origin of your recipe.

“Go Big Red Velvet!” This is a combination of three New York Times recipes: red velvet, lemon sponge, and cream cheese frosting – I was worried about the flavor combinations but they work together beautifully! I watched a YouTube video about the checkered pattern hidden cake design and voila!

Tell us about your proudest moment – or humble failure – in this week’s baking challenge.

Cutting the concentric circles! I’ll have to watch the cake heights next time though!

Describe how you added a Wisconsin twist to your creation.

Red and white cakes! All of the eggs, butter and cream cheese used in this recipe are from Wisconsin.

How did you do?

Pleasantly satisfied.
