You make a good case for passionfruit. I’ve never had it. Perhaps I should. Great job on getting it done!

Passion Fruit and Vanilla, Love it!!!! 2 things I have to disagree with you on, I actually think your cake looks very attractive and 2nd one, if on a “dessert” island I would really, unequivocally have to go for the chocolate. 🙂
Wonderful challenge!!!!

I had to laugh at your first line… who are you and where have you been hiding in MY kicthen. 🙂

I’ve actually never tasted passion fruit. Now I know I need to.

I agree, I need to try passionfruit, it sounds good. Sorry about the white choco. mousse. Chocolate can be so finicky sometimes. Great job on this month’s challenge.

Glad you got it done, it looks great! Thanks for tip about how to get both buttercream and jam between layers — I had trouble with this when we made Dorie’s Party Cake.

Bundt cakes and pound cakes are my favorite as well! I haven’t tried passionfruit, and frozen passionfruit puree sounds like it would make life so sweet and easy. Nice job!

Passionfruit and vanilla sound wonderful. Great job.

I had the same trouble with my strawberry glaze that you did with your passionfruit: once the gelatin’s in, you have to work super fast before you end up with a bunch of lumpy jello on top of your cake!

Your cake looks great, and the flavor combination sounds wonderful. Though I have to agree with John above–stranded on Dessert Island, I’d go for the chocolate every time!

Well your cake looks great! and it is passionfruity *steals a big piece*
Congratulations!!! I am glad you were able to do your challenge

Your cake looks very tasty.

I’d like to know where I can find one of those dessert islands.

Passionfruit is nectar of the gods!

Vanilla and passionfruit sound like a divine combination- I think your cake is beautiful.
I have that same problem with life getting in the way- I always want to do more than I have available time.

Passionfruit and vanilla sounds so delicious! Great job on this challenge!

That passionfruit glaze sounds devine. I will keep that in mind for my next adventure with tropical cakes.
Thanks for sharing what you learnt from the experience as well.

Ooo, passionfruit and lemon opera cake, it sounds delicious. I bet those flavors helped to cut through the sweetness of it. Great job!
