Baking Challenge

Rum Baba

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

Cranberry Castle Rum Baba

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

I’ve never attempted a Rum Baba before and was thrilled it turned out. The recipe was from "Baking With Julia" by Julia Child.

Describe how you added a Wisconsin twist to your creation.

Wisconsin cranberries in place of raisins and local whipping cream.

How did you do?

Pleasantly satisfied.
