HCB continuation: Let's finish the book!

Starting this weekend I will bake the remaining 21 cakes from Rose's Heavenly Cakes (remaining is bolded and underlined because I'm so excited :)). I hope you guys will join me. It will be fun!

The rules are the same and we will have 3 week scheduled baking and 1 week of free choice. I will do a mid- week Last Cake, Next Cake roundup of everyone's post.

In the next few weeks I will change my blog format to have everyone's links on the side (though I will do some cleanup and only people who have been posting in the last 2 months will be included, unless you are temporarily absent due to health/medical reasons or due to life changing reason - like having to move :)). Having the links on my blog will make it easier for everyone to see who posted last. It will also be easier for me, as I was reminded that I missed both of Lola's free choice posts (here and here). Sorry Lola!

I hope no one mind that I'm following Marie's format on a lot of things. I know Marie is fine with it and even nicely suggested that I could change things up if I want to. But I want to keep it the same because I like to be consistent and also it's easier that way (haha), for me and for everyone else. The focus now is to finish the book and eat the cakes, of course.

In case anyone's wondering, here are the list of cakes that I plan to bake (listed in order of the book):
Swedish Pear and Almond Cream Cake
English Gingerbread Cake
Chocolate Tomato Cake with Mystery Ganache
Bernachon Pale d'Or Gateau
German Chocolate Cake
Angel Food Cake
White Gold Passion Genoise
Red Fruit Shortcake
Chocolate Raspberry Trifle
Pure Pumpkin Cheesecake
Ginger Cheesecake with Gingerbread Crust
No-Bake Whipped Cream Cheesecake
Lemon Canadian Crown w/ Ladyfingers
Peanut Butter Ingots
Plum Round Ingots
Coffee Chiffonlets w/ Dulce de Leche Whipped Cream
Individual Pineapple Upside Down Cakes
Deep Chocolate Rosebuds
Molten Chocolate Souffle and Lava Cakes
Barcelona Brownie Bars
Mud Turtle Cupcakes

I know the first two weeks we have chocolate cake back to back (my bad!), but the rest of the schedule it won't be like that. Also, I plan the cake with berries/summer fruits during the summer, where they would be best and more readily available. I'm looking forward to them :).

My email is if anyone has any questions/comments and would like to contact me directly.


  1. Thanks for putting this together, Jenn. I've been slow in my cake and posting schedule lately (no la bomba yet) because of a combination of graduation festivities and my photographer/main taster going abroad--but I'm on board for the finish, despite my missed cakes list being a bit different (have to figure out what it actually is!).

  2. Oh yeah, I'm going to finish this project if it kills me! Looking forward to it.

  3. I will be finishing the project. I will work on my list. Jenn, I will be traveling for a few weeks, so may have to miss blogging. Please do not drop me. Thanks for your efforts.

  4. Will anyone mind if we swap out for things we've already baked as free choices? For example, I did the Chocolate Tomato Cake the first time around -- can I pick another cake I missed for weeks like that?

  5. Kristina, I was hoping to do the same thing. Group, will that be disruptive to the rest of the group?

    Jenn, you are so awesome for keeping this going. Thank you!!!

  6. Jenn,
    I'll do whatever you want me to do. You may find that it's not that easy to get rid of me.

  7. I'm joining in! I want to complete those i have not done yet too! But my list is a bit different from will have to improvise from your list.

  8. I'm in too, Jenn. Thanks for volunteering to continue this project and doing such a great job at it! :o)
