The Great Blogger’s Bake Off – Strawberry Mango Cake

Happy Sunday everyone! I have decided to participate in “The Great Blogger’s Bake-Off” hosted by the lovely blogging duo:

Crushed Caramel

Special Judge: A Jeanne in the Kitchen

So I just finished decorating my cake after a busy day teaching a youth group how to make sushi! I decided to go with a fruity creation after munching on some fruit the other day. I decided to improvise this Betty Crocker Mango Layer recipe by pairing it with strawberries. I created the cake last night and stuck it in the freezer so that the texture would hold as I applied the frosting. I sliced the strawberries into thin slices so that I can place them in between the layers. I sliced the mangoes into small cubes to decorate the top. Showered it with sprinkles and more frosting and….

Voila! Overall, it was a labor of love! Hope you enjoyed my colorful creation! ❀

    1. Thanks Li! Oh yes, it’s a tip that my friend, a professional baker who went to culinary arts school, shared with me years ago. It’s served me well! It also helps make the cake even more moist! πŸ™‚

  1. WOW! That’s a feast for the eyes ( if only i could try a piece in person!) πŸ˜‰

    That deserves a Special Mention in the bake-Off i reckon.

    I originally planned a Mango Mocha cake for my entry, but thought the mango slices might be a Bit pale and slippery so switched to mandarin. Now i wish i hadn’t! πŸ˜‰

    You are such a multi-talent, Sa! πŸ˜€

    1. Thanks Bob! My friends devoured the cake!πŸ˜„πŸ° Even the ones who claimed they didn’t like sweet things enjoyed it.

      All the cakes in the bake off looked delicious! I’m sure you could always make another cake.πŸ˜‰ Theres different types of mangos.

      1. You are so right! I had in mind some canned slices at first but your cake looks so good i’m definitely going to have a go with fresh fruit! πŸ™‚

        Fortunately Australia is famous for them. πŸ˜‰
