Another Strawberry Cake
Hi to all! Happy New Year 2013!!
For all of you recovering from the holidays i am starting the new year with a lighter type of cake.
In order this cake to actually be light we are cutting down on some of the requirements to make it, please follow the recipe and you'll get amazing results as on the picture.
For the base
3 ready to go cake layers (the ones you can buy from the store/bakery)
4 cups of water
1 cup of sugar
40ml of any type of Liqour
For the glaze
200ml of bakery cream
200ml of regular cream
500gr of strawberries cut in half
8 spoons of sugar
Lets get this done..
Take the 4 cups of water and heat them up (not boiling!) and the sugar and the Liquor into it. Stear it up a few times. Let this cool off completely.
Take the 3 cake layers and sirup them with the sugary water you just made.
For the glaze you need to mix the bakery cream on high speed while slowly adding the regular cream and the 8 spoons of sugar. At the end you will have 1 thick creamy mixture, feel free to taste it with your finger to check if the sugar levels are good, if not you might add another spoon. Don't make it too sugary tho.
Put layer 1 then smear it with cream. Decorate strawberries all over it. Do the same with the second layer. At the end put the 3d and last layer ontop of the other 2 layers and smear the whole cake with cream. Decorate the top with the rest of the strawberries, you can also add other fruits if you have, like raspberries or banana.
Let the cake cool in the fridge for about 20 minutes before serving.
Enjoy your cake!
