Out-Cakes from Rose's Heavenly Cakes: Sponge Cakes
I love the way the cracks formed on the top of this Angel Food Cake
The Completed Chocolate Apricot Roll
Génoise Process Shots
Fully Beaten Batter Increased in Volume by Over Four Times
Mixing a Cup of the Batter with the Clarified Butter and Using a Slotted Skimmer to Fold in the Flour
The Slotted Skimmer Moves the Flour through the Batter Evenly without Deflating It
The Red Fruit Cake When Wine Berries Were in Season in Hope
Woody Testing Notes:
The cake flour (or all-purpose flour) & cornstarch, cake was lighter, slightly drier, and more open grain. It absorbed the berry juices more readily and evenly. People preferred it over the Wondra for this type of cake
The thinness of the Wondra in the center when inverting to put on the juices risks that the cake might tear.
The Pinch Cake Before I Learned How to Use My Digital Camera! (Doesn't this sort of remind you of an Andy Warhol?)
