Better Homes and Gardens hosted four baking bloggers for our annual Ultimate Baking Challenge. This year's winner was Julianne of Beyond Frosting, whose lush tangy-but-sweet cranberry Bundt cake features a champagne glaze.
"There's so much creativity in baking and, I think, for me, that's what motivates me the most," Julianne says. Julianne, who blogs at BeyondFrosting.com, went through three Bundt cakes at the annual Better Homes & Gardens Ultimate Baking Challenge. During the bake-off in our Test Kitchen, Julianne created a moist, sweet, but not-too-sweet citrus cake with bursts of dried cranberries and the benefit of a buttery champagne-sugar glaze.
As Julianne says, "When you've got the right dessert, you know on that first bite."
