So I Googled "Cassata Cake" a few weeks ago expecting the one with Strawberries and Custard...yeah to my suprise as I read they consider that kind "Cleveland Cassata". I will still be making that one, but this weekend I made the traditional one. Boy, was it good! It is a sponge cake (that I made from scratch I might add) with a filling that almost tasted like canonoli filling. I torted the cake, but only twice, where I sould have done it 3 times. So instead I used the rest of the filling and iced the top of the cake with it.
So Queen Karen got me a new pan set to use, Brand new-at a garage sale, for $1.00!!!! (Pampered Chef too) Sweet!!! I should go Garage Sale-ing to look for fun baking supplies!! Its a 3 Piece set, with the regular Springform Pan, a Bundt insert and a Heart insert. (I'll have to take pics of the set) I can't wait to use it! =) Thanks Queen Karen!
I harvested my 1st Rhubarb of the season so what else to do but buy strawberries to go with the rhubarb and make pie! Bennie and Grandpa loved it! =) I had such a hard time with the crust this time, I followed the recipe, but it seemed like it needed more flour...so I couldn't do the lattice weave better.
I signed up at Michael's to take the Fondant and Gum paste Course that they offer for the month of June. It was 1/2 off (good thing too bc I had to purchase a bunch of supplies), I had a $5.00 off coupon, PLUS I get the 2011 Wilton Yearbook for free with the class (I can't wait for it to arrive!!!). Class one was on June 7th and we made fondant bows...it wasn't completely dry...so it smooshed. I'll make another one to post one day...maybe...
