Cake and Berries

Here's the link to the Mill city Farmer's Market web site. On July 18 I am doing a baking demo at the Mill City Museum at 1, 2 and 3 p.m. as part of the Farmer's Market Celebration. At the market web site you can also check out what local organic produce is available this week.

I will be baking a basic yellow cake from scratch and frosting it with a heavenly rich and berry-full frosting. Actually I'll probably bake miniature cupcakes as they make perfect bite-size samples.

In addition I'll show how to make shortcake and top it with luscious summer berries. It's the peak of the berry season and we'll have strawberries, raspberries and blueberries. Everyone is always surprised with how easy it is to make a shortcake. Of course, we'll finish with a fluffy mound of whipped cream.
