Cinnamon Milk Cake With Strawberry

Well this is the birthday cake i made for my hubby.The cake was very soft and fluffy ,But if you see the pictures you may wonder what happened to the step where you see cream topping in the steps getting missed in my final product ,oops the cream defaulted as i tried an experiment with evaporated milk to form a whipped cream.
The failure was not in the cake recipe as per say,its the whipped cream topping.I didn’t have heavy cream in my hand but i had few cans of evaporated milk so i thought why not whisk it up to a whipped cream like we regularly make whipped cream with heavy cream.The whipping went as i planned and the cream came fluffier and tasty but once after i set it up on the cake and left it in refrigerator it started deflating and became regular evaporated milk again,so lesson learned if i whip up evaporated milk use it faster like instant topping rather than prolonged topping like cream.And to tell about the taste i added some extra flavor and sugar to the evaporated milk while i whipped it,when deflated the flavor became too intense,so while whipping up evaporated milk don’t add too much sugar or flavor other than than it should be good.
But the cake recipe as a whole is good and the credit goes to aunt jemmimas Cake recipe which i found on the box.
oh hoo yep i tried this cake recipe using waffle mix since i had less time to come up with a surprise cake recipe and not too much hassle.
Just add the box mix which has all evening agents and sugar added already,just add few ingredients together to make the batter,it was quite easy.So why don’t you try this recipe if you like what you see.
