1st cake with The Cake Slice - Sweet Potato Cake
I was a tad apprehensive when I reviewed the ingredients and saw Cake Flour listed.
I made a cake at TWD that required cake flour and did not like the end result ..the spongy-ness texture of the cake just does nothing for me....although everyone else in my house raved about the cake. So I hoped for the best with this Sweet potato cake and began baking!!!
First bump in the road... I don't have 3 pans of any size...so I pulled out 2 of the 9" pans and one cheap 8" pan that I dug out from wayyyyy in the back of my cabinet.
They baked pretty quickly and all seemed well until I began assembling them...I put the 8" at the bottom...OOOOPS....and I didnt have thawed OJ concentrate only regular liquid OJ...although the jug did say it was made from concentrate...which I didnt think made a difference until the filling started ooozing out as I cut the cake!!!
All in all the taste was ok. Not a cake I will have at the top of my list to make over...but hey Im a Chocolate girl at heart...so Im a little biased!
Can't wait for the reveal of next month's selection!!! Until then Bake & be Happy!!!
