NOT a Daring Baker

Its that time of the month where the Daring Bakers' Ladies and gents gather and show off what they did with the challenge for the month.

I'm so disappointed to say that I wasn't able to do my challenge, it look absolutely gorgeous and it would have been definitely a nice challenge for me, its a Strawberry Mirror Cake, unfortunately here in the Philippines, summer season (March til May) is already over so no more strawberries that are readily available unlike before. I was planning to make use of frozen strawberries instead, however, I can't find them in the freezer section of my supermarket. I even tried using canned, well..suffice to saw the canned ones look hideous once I opened the can. They tasted canned and water logged, they definitely DID NOT laste anything remotely like strawberries. I did not want to waste all my other ingredients when the main ingredient that is the start in this recipe isn't that good, so I set aside my recipe and save it for next summer.

I'm so envious of all those other Daring Bakers who were able to complete their challenge...Hopefully, for August, there woudn't be seasonal fruit based again...please!

  1. Sorry to hear you were unable to complete the challenge. I caught the tail end of strawberry season myself - there were loads everywhere, but when I began making the cake, they were hardly available.
    Hope you'll be able to join in in August!!
