Tuesdays with Dorie–Week 10—French Strawberry Cake

| 11 Comments

I made our cake this afternoon. The recipe didn't work. I made another genoise recipe, finished the cake and was all ready to blog about my big catastrophe. But we just got a call that there's been a death in the family, and suddenly, who cares if the cake didn't turn out? Here's a picture of the finished slice. It's a little bit of sweetness on a suddenly sad day.

Our hosts this week are Sophia of Sophia’s Sweets and Allison of Sleep Love Think Dine. Check out the cake with fruit and cream combo, but maybe try a different genoise recipe.

  1. So sorry to hear of your sad news. Your cake slice looks lovely.

    • Thanks. My husband’s father died last night, only a couple of hours after they’d spoken on the phone. He has been sick for many years, but it was a shock anyway. We’re all very sad.

  2. I’m so sorry. I wish you peace and comfort at this sad time.
