Elderflower and Roasted Strawberry Layer Cake #CakeSliceBakers

This was the one.

Every time I get a new cookbook, there is always one recipe that I can't wait to make.

One that makes you want to turn on the oven and immediately start baking. With last year's cookbook, this was the one that initially piqued my interest.  It turned out to not be my absolute favorite from the book (that honor went to this bake), but was still quite good with a couple tweaks.

In The New Way to Cake, this Elderflower and Roasted Strawberry Layer Cake got me excited.

And I wasn't disappointed.

Honestly, I haven't had a total flop yet from this book.

*Knocks on wood*

I still have recipes I need to try from The New Way to Cake, but this one will be a serious contender for favorite.  Check out the links at the bottom of this post to see what the other lovely bakers made!

I The Great British Baking Show, and contestants frequently use elderflower as a flavor.  Harry and Meghan chose a Lemon and Elderflower cake for their 2018 royal wedding. …
