Let’s Review the August Baking Challenge

August 2019 Sally’s Baking Challenge Recipe: Vertical Layer Cake

Can you even believe that you made this skyscraper beauty of a cake? I thought we’d have a low participation rate in August because of the level of difficulty and August is a typical vacation month. Well. Judging by all these towering vertical cakes, I was clearly wrong! Your stunning cakes make mine look amateur. I love all your cakes!

One of my favorite recipe reviews came from reader Aubrey:

“This was my first challenge to participate in and I loved it! What a fun idea! The cake turned out great and was fun to assemble. It was the most uniform looking cake I’ve ever made. I felt so accomplished after I finished. I’m looking forward to the next challenge!”

We gathered as many vertical cake photo entries as we could and included them below.

  4. So many beautiful cakes were made in this challenge! Congratulations Robin on your entry!

  5. Congratulations Robin and to all who participated!! Well, mine isn’t in there because it didn’t turn out so good. I am pretty sure that I over-mixed the batter and it looked like one Sally showed in her post of failures!! I should have added the flour mixture in 3 additions instead of 2. I kept mixing it because I kept finding pockets of flour. It tasted great, but it definitely wasn’t made for pictures!!!! I will try again soon. Cheese bread! Yes please!!
