  1. Wonderful advice! I’m keeping this tucked away for when the time comes. Also, your daughters are so lucky to get such wonderful (and beautiful!) birthday cakes!!

    The cake looks beautiful… just, I hate buttercream frosting… what could I use instead?

  3. Love the good cake. Need the good cake! Every birthday of the girl has included a stellar cake.

  4. Beautiful picture of this gorgeous cake. Seems like it tastes pretty good too :)

  5. THIS CAKE LOOKS AMAZING! Beetroot in the batter = stroke of genius! I love berry flavoured cakes, but could never get the colour I want. SOLVED.

  6. Both cakes are simply gorgeous. Parenting IS real, isn’t it? From the looks of things, from afar, you seem to be doing a damn fine job of it. xo

  7. This cake is stunning! What a perfect birthday cake! My husband loves raspberry. I am sure he will be thrilled if I make this cake.

    I was so pleased to find this recipe as I wanted a good raspberry cake to use for baking hearts into a cake but I was so disappointed. It came out mush darker in colour than the photographs and just tasted of beet. What did I do wrong?

    • Hi Carol, I am sorry it didn’t turn out for you. I don’t have a lot to go on here in terms of what might have happened, but one guess is that it might have something to do with the differences in beets and in their sweetness and texture through the seasons. The recipe only calls for 1/4 cup of finely shredded beet, so I really can’t guess what would make the flavor so overpowering in such a large cake. I found the cake didn’t taste of beet at all, so I’m surprised at your results. Thanks for sharing your feedback, and I’m sorry you weren’t happy with the results.

    My cake turned out really dense :( Should I have whipped the egg whites before folding them into the batter?
