Recent cakes

Tried a third time to make strawberry shortcake, using this recipe. Since I couldn't get it to rise enough, I made two cakes and used them as layers. That was rather too much cake-to-cream ratio. Next time, I think I'll seek out a softer sponge cake recipe.

Then I tried a New Orleans torte from the Perfect Endings Nestle cookbook. It consists of meringues layered with cream cheese chocolate filling.

It turned out well, but is almost overwhelmingly sweet.
