Heavenly Cake - Strawberry Shortcake


To bad I could not find marion berries as It would have been really nice to try them.

Mixing the batter.

They got a little overdone. Remember to adjust the baking time for cupcakes. There is also not really enough room in a cupcake to dig out a proper hole for the berries.

I mixed some of the left over strawberry juices into the whipped cream for a pink tinge. I had to do a second batch of whipped cream since it was not enough.

Getting a little cake baking burn out. Not enough time for bread baking. I have been attempting to find the time and headspace to make sourdough pumpernickel bread for awhile now...
I am looking forward to (eeek) that apple charlotte though. Any cake with a cut out diagram has got to be a little work intensive. Maybe I'll make it for Rosh Ha'shana (Jewish New Year.)


  1. Pink whipped cream is a good idea. Wish I'd thought of that.

    I'm eager to see your sourdough pumpernickel!

  2. That's a good idea to make pink-ish whipped cream.
    Am also a bit freaked out about the apple charlotte. It's 7 pages long (longer than St. Honore Trifle).

  3. Looks delicious with strawberries!

  4. Buck up, Mendy! Only about 30 recipes left to go. I am totally freaked out about the apple charlotte. Even Woody, the eternal optimist, sounds grim when he mentions it.
    (I know what you mean about missing bread baking).

  5. Mendy,
    Try your zip code on this site for frozen Marionberries.

    Marie: Thanks for the words of encouragement, that helps.

    Vicki: Thanks for the link! I'll check it out.

  7. i love the idea of pink whip cream! i wish i could have sent out marionberries to every one who couldn't find them. oh well.

    i hear you on the cake burn out. are you going to take a break? i'm trying to do more two-cake weekends to give me (and my friends) some time off. hope you can get to you pumpernickel and find time to blog it!
