This year Sofia wanted an all white cake. We decided on the same white cake recipe from Shirley Corriher that created the epic fail cupcakes. I backed off the baking powder and it helped but it was still a fiasco. I over filled the pans and they started bubling up right away. I had to take the pans out and scoop out 30% of the batter from each one part way through baking. They also made big bubbles and sank in the middle when they cooled.
Not the best.
The filling was a creme filling for eclairs and the icing was whipped cream stabilized with cream cheese. I was able to hide the concave layers with a combination of over stuffing the middle with filling and plenty of icing. I used a comb that I cut out of cardboard to make the patterns.
In spite of the tribulations, the final result was delicious.
