Baking Challenge

Mirror Glaze Cake

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

"Icy Lake" Almond sponge cake with raspberry cream, covered in white chocolate mousse.

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

I always overthink and overexert myself, so I should have gone with a simpler cake to glaze. Still turned out wonderful!

Describe how you added a Wisconsin twist to your creation.

I was inspired by Wisconsin’s many lakes and when they freeze over. I think they are so beautiful and serene.

How did you do?

Pleasantly satisfied.
