Bravo for baking twice although I think the first batch would have been fine. I greased and floured my non-stick tin and the cakes just fell out. I was happy I didn't have to prise them out. Your cake looks great and I'm impressed by the care you took with your little paint brush.

You're probably right Catherine! Now that I see what other people did with their cakes, I could have pulled off something. I also think that I should have greased the shortcake pan better, even though it's non-stick.

Excellent photos. I love seeing "Captain Canada" with a dollop of posset on his nose. What a good sport.

Captain Canada is just being himself...

I'm so glad that the bakers like this.. Love the picture of your husband finishing off the bowl - I sort of look like that yesterday when I was trying to to lick my way around the container of the posset. I actually did another batch tonight - the cakes did not last past sunday night - Tom sort of pigged out on them. I had to HIDE one in order for me to have a full taste and not a spoonful. Your pictures as always pretty amazing. - and I'm totally jealous of your stove :)

Thanks Monica. The stove? It was a must-have the minute we had any spare money. What I like most (besides the gas) is on the lowest setting, I can melt chocolate without it getting too hot.

I admire your determination and making the shortcakes again! The shortcakes are very fragile and the 'skin' that forms the pattern gets stuck to the pan if you don't take it out like fast... I think. Cos that's why the first few of mine was good and then the last 2 had the surfacing coming off.

I see the other Alpha Bakers did just fine with what I threw out! Go figure. Your point about taking out the cakes immediately from the mold is a good one. I didn't grease and flour them because the pan was non-stick. I wonder if that was the problem.

very nice demonstration, and tips I'll definitely use the bottle for next time !!

Kimberlie 2017-01-08

I learned the bottle trick from Rose's Cake Bible. Thanks for your nice words.

So gorgeous! I found the same thing with the brush for both the syrup and apple jelly. Great bottle tip. I switched to dripping the jelly off a spoon and spreading it around. Probably because I didn't read the part about letting them set between Posset toppings, mine didn't dry out. We loved them runny!

Thanks Vicki! It was a delicious recipe. Loved it!

Kim, did you wrap the cakes with plastic wrap after the lemon syrup and apple jelly? I was a little confused about the instructions and did. Wonder if this kept them from drying out?

Kimberlie 2017-01-08

Hi Vicki. Did I wrap the cakes in plastic wrap? No. I just laid PW over the top. I was trying to avoid excess handling, but in the end, I should have taken more care! The apple jelly was sticky and I worried the plastic wrap would stick to the apple jelly and tear the cake.

Hi Kim: Really love the pictures, and wasn't this a great recipe? Mine were fragile and sort of a pain in the neck to work with. I do love it, though. Please give the captain our best from his friends in America--he has a "brother" down here he hasn't yet met (and his name is...Smitty!).

Great post and I love the picture of Captain Canada with the posset on his nose. I've never made brown butter before but this changes things quite a bit.

Tony Bridges   2017-01-08

Kimberlie, LOVED your humor and the cakes look lovely. It's amazing how the design does disappear. However,...Brown Butter Rules! I will be making this one again - Great site design as well - very user friendly

Kimberlie 2017-01-08

Hi Tony. Thanks for your message and your nice words. I'm always tweaking the site to make it as user friendly and dynamic as possible. If I'm not careful, days fly by!

Mendy   2017-01-08

Your cakes really look lovely. I didn't realize how delicate they were for other people. I have a special brush that makes it easier to baste the cakes. Maybe I'll blog about it next time we have a cake like this.

Kimberlie 2017-01-08

Thanks Mendy! Yes, blog about the special brush you use. I'm on my way to your site to see.

Terri   2017-01-08

What an adventure! Got to taste the final dessert and it was divine! If you love lemon ..... this is IT! The posset was rich and flavorful while the shortcake was delicate and light. The perfect combination. Absolutely divine. Well worth the extra shot at getting the shortcake just right! Well done Kim!

Kimberlie 2017-01-08

Thank you Terri! Your very supportive. I really appreciate it.
