Mistake cake came out great
Thanks to everyone who replied to my previous post regarding the forgotten vanilla. I wound up using that cake. The second one, made with AP turned out terrible.
The cake was a smash hit!! The missing vanilla was not missed at all. I did take a tip from one of the posters in my other thread and added a little extra vanilla to the whipped cream. I think the meringue (sp?) carried a lot of the flavor that was missing. Certainly not beautiful by professional standards, but for a first time trying to actually decorate... Not too bad. I didn't realize until just now that I had strawberries going in both directions around the rim. Oh well, that's what happens when rushed. It still tasted great.
Thanks for the help.
