We recently celebrated my husbands, 24th birthday and instead of buying a cake (which is what I would usually do) I decided to make a cake. Personally, baking isn’t something I enjoy that often but the occasion called for me to pull together every ounce of baking I had in my body to make something edible.
I came across this delicious cake blog called The Cake Blog… I know behind the curve. Recognized by almost every lifestyle magazine, it’s a collaboration of bakers from around the country who share their recipe secrets with the world. I was so excited by all the delicious recipes I bookmarked about fifteen of them. My husband loves fruit and neither of us are big icing fans. It was about 100 degrees outside the week of his birthday; so whats better than cool whipped cream and refreshing fruit paired with a delicious sponge cake.
It was so fun to bake and honestly, one of the tastiest things I’ve ever made. The Cake Blog is definitely a keeper and a super helpful resource for recipes. Below is the recipe from the Cake blog! Try it out and enjoy!
Inspired by the classic dessert, this Eaton Mess Cake combines crisp meringues, sweetened cream, fresh berries – layered between a light and airy sponge cake. A refreshing dessert for spring and summer celebrations.
