OK, I have to say something heretical. The letter or number cakes as you can see here have disappointed me. Yes, you read right. I expected something as good as my beloved sponge roll with strawberry cream, at least if you make the cakes with sponge cake. The strawberry cream is a dream come true with a fluffy and light sponge cake. It has this light feeling to it, I expected this light feeling when I took my first bite from below letter cakes. And then I was disappointed. As I made rather narrow letters, the dough tasted crunchy, gooey, just not good. Even though I was happy about the additional fresh fruits, the better ratio of cream versus sponge cake, I was not happy. I wanted my favorite roll! I was depressed.
These letter and number cakes were started by Adi Klinghofer on Instagram (she has a wide consortium of letter cakes). Her cake caught fire on Pinterest and soon were imitated by others. If you make letters cakes, you will generate clicks. But that is definitely NOT the reason why I wanted to post. Most definitely not!
