It’s another Daring Bakers Challenge day! You are about to see hundreds of cakes pop up on blogs across the world. This month’s challenge; Dorie’s Perfect Party Cake. I was thrilled, just thrilled that we were to make a cake!

Rather than one big cake, I decided to make mini-cakes. Still the same process, but rather than bake in two 9-inch rounds, I baked my cakes in 10 small ramekins. For the ramekins I buttered and floured ramekins and filled them about 3/4 high. The cake rose beautifully (higher than the ramekin). When it was finished and cooled, I sliced the top off to level it out. Then I cut the cake in half, then both sides in half again. Very do-able with a good serrated knife.I made several mini-cakes with the traditional raspberry jam and lemon buttercream.

I also did some with fresh blueberries and the lemon buttercream.

And for my “I only eat white food” son I made some with just the buttercream.

This challenge was a lot of fun. I will be making this cake again. I think the recipe is just perfect as it is and wouldn’t change a thing.

My thanks and heartfelt gratitude to Morven for choosing the Perfect Party Cake. I had a lot of fun with this challenge and am looking forward to making this cake again!
