Strawberry Fraisier Cake with Mango Glaze

Jana of Cherry Tea Cakes was our July Daring Bakers’ host and she challenges us to make Fresh Frasier’s inspired by recipes written by Elisabeth M. Prueitt and Chad Robertson in the beautiful cookbook Tartine.

This is my first challenge at Daring Bakers. The challenge is to make a cake with exposed fruits, edible flowers, etc. around the sides of the center layer. All the components (cake, Bavarian cream, syrup, and glaze) were all made from scratch by myself.

This is the first time I ever made a frasier cake. I must say it was an experience but because I had to bake and come up with creativity this was so much fun for me. I am my worst critic so next time, oh yes I will be making this again, I will make some changes to the presentation.

I decided to do an orange sponge cake, layered with strawberries, infused with a Bavarian cream and finished with a mango glaze.

It tastes great. I feel like I am back home in the islands again with the different tropical flavors in this cake.

I hope you like!


  1. I'm following back!! By the way, I have made those thin mint cupcakes and they are delicious!

  2. Sounds delicious. More the Merrier Monday will be open until Wednesday at midnight. I would love for you to stop by and link up your cake.

  3. Congrats on complleting your first Daring Bakers challenge. This was just my second challenge and did an orange cake too. Your mango glaze on top looks so good. What a great idea. Welcome to Daring Bakers.
