With my parents in town I decided to make a cake. My plan had been to make an angel food cake with blood orange filling and buttercream icing.
The worst part of it all was making everything without a stand mixer. Lots and lots of beating of egg whites and all.
We couldn’t get blood oranges at our grocery store, I guess they’re out of season… So I substituted it with a grapefruit.
The end product looked pretty good, but I personally didn’t like the taste too much. I put it in the fridge since I didn’t want the buttercream sitting out for a day and it made the whole cake too hard. And the buttercream for me was really buttery. There was lots of butter in it so I guess I shouldn’t be surprised.
I added the fondant bow to the top. It started to crumble and fell to pieces when I tried to remove it to cut it.
