You know that saying “When life hands you lemons, make lemonade”?
That is really just a polite way of saying…
“Dude! Quit your whining. Slap a smile on your face, suck it up and deal with it”.
I had such high hopes for this cake Berry Surprise Cake that Mary Ann of Meet me in the Kitchen chose for today’s TWD.
And they fell flat.
A little less than an inch flat.
So I slapped a smile on my face.
Cut the cake into cubes.
Doused them in syrup.
Dumped some toffee bits into the filling, because Internet, no amount of smile slapping, sucking it up, or dealing with it is going to induce me to pay almost $4 a pound for out of season berries.
And made a Berry Toffee Surprise Cake Parfait.
This is delicious. It is light and not sweet like most desserts, and this would be fabulous with strawberries on a hot summer day.
I think I will retry then.
I think lemons are in season then too.
