Looks awesome. This cake is so simple and pretty, the mint leaves is a nice idea. You got great height on the cake, congrats!

You had no troubles with the middle of the cake sinking! Wow, what a beautiful cake.

Wow.. your cake looks beautiful.. the blackberries and mint leaves look great! How did you manage to make it so tall?? Mine was so flat it wasn't even a funny scene :(
BEAUTIFUL cake!

Carolina, your cake is so beautiful!! I love the mint leaves - they really dress it up so nicely.

(by the way, I'm glad to hear that a Houstonite had never heard of dry chorizo, either. I feel much better now. ;-) )

Peggy said...

How on earth did you get your cake to rise like that? I'm sooo impressed! Love the mint leaves too. :)

Thanks for the nifty tip about the meringue powder!

That looks deliciously perfect!

Cathy said...

OMG!!!!!! That is the most perfect cake I've seen so far! That is the height I was aiming for with my cake (but I failed miserably). If I could figure out how to get THAT CAKE, I would totally try to make this again. You knocked this one out of the park!
