Baking Challenge

Upside Down Cake

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

Rhubarb strawberry and ginger cake. I have strawberries and rhubarb for the fruit and some candied ginger. The cake has ground ginger in it.

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

The rhubarb leaked all over and made a big sticky mess.I also forgot to add the baking powder. I spent 15 minuets trying to get the baking powder into the batter.

Describe how you added a Wisconsin twist to your creation.

I used rhubarb from my garden and used locally grown strawberries. The ginger from the cake was bought at Penzey’s.

How did you do?

Yikes! And not happy about it.
