Baking Challenge


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

Touchdown Marjolaine! I used the recipe supplied from the Great British Baking Show.

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’ve made all the components of this recipe separately in the past, but doing it all at once for one grand piece was pretty overwhelming. Luckily, each step turned out well. The real challenge was in trying to decorate the Packer "G"!

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

I changed the decoration and included the Green Bay Packers as the centerpiece. The piping isn’t perfect, but it came out pretty well. Mary would say the decoration is "informal."

How did you do?

Absolutely lovely.
