Cake Challenge

“The only real stumbling block is fear of failure. In cooking you’ve got to have a what-the-hell attitude.”
― Julia Child

I had not intended to spend two nights baking. But as I am slowly learning, some things may not happen as planned.

I was again asked to bake a cake big enough to feed 40 people. This time it was a manager at my workplace looking for a cake for a member of her team. I thought what the hell, why not? I did it once and it turned out ok, so I would try it again. I like a challenge. I always said I wasn’t one to bake cakes. I’m more a cookie or cupcake girl. You know what? I think I am a cake girl.

What batter to fill this baking pan with?




Mix them all together…


Bake it and you have…


It’s a big banana cake. Made two layers, albeit not willingly but out of necessity…


Coconut buttercream in between the layers…



Let’s glaze with the standard dark chocolate glaze. It was getting late, it was easy…


Congrats Larry on your wedding. Man, I SUCK at letters!! Must practice more…


Boxed and ready to be eaten tomorrow! Hope the team likes it!! =)
