Southern Living Strawberry Cake: Nailed it.

After a trip to the store,

30 minutes prep,

and 2 hours of cooking for this beautiful cake….







How is this even POSSIBLE?

And  y’all question when we end up at fast food for dinner?




PS I had much better luck with a Kit Kat Brownie recipe!


  1. hahaha.. kudos to you for sharing this! i always feel like I’m such a loser when I can’t “nail” stuff like that.. but now i feel human again:)

  2. I love you… You are so cool that you are willing to show us your flops.
    I know that you WILL tackle this one day.

  3. Gosh I couldn’t have even attempted that cake, I suck at anything that requires egg whites and then layering!

  4. The Southern Living version looks DELICIOUS! But it would have happened here, too. I have to attempt things way more than once to get it right.

  5. This is exactly how it would have turned out if I tried this–you’re not alone!

    Still looks like it would taste good, though, strawberry crepes instead?

  6. Looks better than our tart cake thingies…. or Lacey’s sugar cookies. 😉

  7. :( I suck at anything with egg whites. That cake is droolworthy though!

  8. Don’t you love when this happens? I am always so scared to make those pretty things because mine don’t turn out so pretty. Was your result tasty at least?

  9. crepes!

  10. Oh boy! Don’t feel bad, I have those days all the time. What is the cake part made out of?

    • Its egg whites and sugar. I had it all fluffy and you add the other crap I had to prep (pecans, cornstarch) to it and fold it in..then goes in the oven where it died.
