Well I baked my “first” cake yesterday. I put first in quotes because I have baked many cakes and pies before but this is the first cake using my new techniques. I did this cake for practice.
I used two 8″ aluminum pans and baked for about 30 minutes on 350 degrees. I made a white cake with a strawberry filling and buttercream icing. I practiced some piping around the edge and some designs in the center.
Here are a few pictures of the cake. I cut a slice out so you could see the inside filling. The taste came out pretty good but I still need more practice on the frosting and design.
