The 2020 #TheCakeSliceBakers Parade and Recap

A little marzipan-covered cake that I made for my mom's 70th birthday in October 2020

What a year this has been! Between the coronavirus pandemic and being sheltered in place since March to a tumultuous political arena and a ridiculous parade of celebrations that we missed, I am happy to have 2020 in the rear view mirror. But one of the bright spots of each month was waking up on the 20th day to see all of the cakes posted by my fellow Cake Slice Bakers. Being part of the group has definitely bolstered by cake baking skills. I still have a long way to go in terms of decorating, but I can bake a delicious cake almost every time!

In this group, we are given a selection of three cake recipes. We each choose one cake to bake, and then on the 20th - never before - we all post about our cake on our blogs. There are a few rules that we follow, but the most important ones are to have fun and enjoy baking & eating cakes!

Follow our FacebookInstagram, and Pinterest pages where you can find all of our cakes, as well as inspiration for many other cakes. You can also click on the links below to take you to each of our cakes. If you have a blog and are interested in joining The Cake Slice Bakers and baking along with us, please send an email to thecakeslicebakers at gmail dot com for more details.

The Cake Slice Bakers also have a new Facebook group called The Cake Slice Bakers and Friends. This group is perfect for those who do not have a blog but want to join in the fun and bake through this book.

So, we spent the year baking through The New Way to Cake: Simple Recipes with Exceptional Flavor by Benjamina Ebuehi.* I'm linking to my post and it includes the links to everyone else's creations. Enjoy.

September 2020: Somehow I dropped the ball and missed this month. But, looking at the selections I would have picked the Plum & Black Peppercorn cake. I'll make that soon!

And I just wanted to have all of the post in one spot so you could be inspired! We also have our new book for 2021 and I cannot wait to start baking from it. We'll be looking at Little Everyday Cakes: 50+ Perfectly Proportioned Confections to Enjoy Any Day of the Week by Candace Floyd*. Stay tuned. 

 Without Floyd's guidance, I had baked two little cakes for my parents' birthdays in October. I used large ramekins and was completely winging it on proportions and timing. I'm looking forward to actually making little cakes based on her expertise!
