The past 2 weeks at work have been very hectic for everyone. Tomorrow is the last day of exams and we’ll all feel some relief, of course in a different way that the students. I decided to bake a cake to take into work for our office. A fresh fruit cake.
It is a simple cake to make in that it only has 3 ingredients for the actual cake…well 4 if you count the 2tsp of baking powder. I round up these 3 identical glasses. The number of eggs I crack into the first glass determines the size of the cake (this one had 7)!! The other 2 ingredients are measured one into each remaining glass to the same height as the eggs are in their glass.
Once the cake has baked and cooled I slice it in the middle and moisten it with a mixture of water, rum and sugar. I arrange cut strawberries and whip cream in the middle, and strawberries, grapes, kiwi fruit and whip cream on the outside. Finally I spread almost “ready” jello over top. The cake is best when made the day before so the flavours of the moistening take effect. I made a little white chocolate “Spring” sign. I’d love to share with you.
sugar canister I received in the 70s. The top does not turn on properly most of the time. I should be getting used to either picking the cannister up more carefully or getting used to stopping to sweep up sugar from the floor.
