Baking Challenge

Drizzle Cake

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

Lickety Split Lemony Cake … I found it searching Google on the BBC Food website.

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

1st – Finally finding a use for Grandma Marcie’s 1950 Weight Losers scale as the recipe’s ingredients were by weight (WHY do they do that?) 2nd – Remembering my oven’s baking element died last week and switching my creation to the microwave.

Describe how you added a Wisconsin twist to your creation.

Used Wisconsin AA butter AND photographed it with a marigold-petunia garnish on a dandelion-friendly Wisconsin lawn.

How did you do?

It’s not pretty, but it’s edible.
