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.

Happy Birthday!

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

The fact that the cake actually looks somewhat like a checkerboard was a wonderful surprise.

Describe how you added a Wisconsin twist to your creation.

I used Wisconsin butter, milk, eggs and sour cream. The hickory nuts used for decoration were gathered from my Aunt and Uncle’s Century dairy farm. The biggest connection to Wisconsin is that is for a Wisconsin born and raised birthday boy!

How did you do?

Pleasantly satisfied.
