Without further ado, I present to you another food porn post!
I'll be honest. I let the recipe's name fool me. After all, it is called Easy Layer Cake with Custard and Strawberries. It couldn't be too difficult, right? Thus my journey began..
Okay, so I know it looks heinous. This is what I was trying to avoid. But it's not done yet!
My mother doesn't typically eat cake, which is why finding the 'perfect cake recipe' was a near impossible task from the start. But I was determined, and when I found this recipe (which seemed like it wouldn't be too sweet, and had a good bit of fruit in it), I knew I had found what I was looking for. The verdict? Well, I successfully got my mother to eat an entire semi-big slice of cake. I will count that as a major success. Furthermore, my entire family loved it, and I can happily say that the cake is nearly gone (and I will point out: there were only 5 people here to eat a 3-layer cake), so all in all, if you've got the time, the talent, and the patience to tackle this beast of a cake: go for it!
