My first pie cake really was a flop. Yes, it tasted good, but it didn’t firm up right. I’m honestly surprised my class of 5th/6th grade girls ate it without questioning or objecting! They are super nice. However, after the first attempt, I just couldn’t get improvements out of my head. I kept thinking about all the things I could do different. After much brainstorming, I settled on a red, white and blue theme for the upcoming 4th of July holiday. Instead of just strawberries, I added blueberries to the filling mix. I also used white cake mix instead of yellow for a more pure white color. My original plan was going to be strawberries with lemon cake. My sister than suggested blueberries with lemon cake. I found a way to do it all. I didn’t want the color of lemon cake, but I wanted the flavor. I added lemon extract to the white cake mix so I could get the flavor without the color. The cake turned out super tasty (I made a little cake with the leftover batter). After letting the pie firm up a bit, I plan on diving into it! I learned a lot from my mistakes and I’m glad that I tried it again! If at first you don’t succeed, try try again!
Or should I say pie pie again!
