Daisy Strawberry Cake & Washi Tape

May 3, 2012 |  by  |  Blog, Food for the Soul, Freebies, Summer

I have a treat for you today! And since I fell in love with daisies, they are of course part of the treat as well;-) It’s amazing how much nicer it looks, if you add edible flowers to your food! This flower-power-cake blew me away about a year ago, when I discovered the blog Green Kitchen Stories. Today I am making my own daisy version.

 

 

Recipe

You will need:

3 Ready made sponge cake layers (or homemade or cake mix)
Ca 500ml whip cream
A couple of tablespoons strawberry jam
Strawberries
Daisies

 

 

 

 

1.Whip the cream until stiff. Take the 1st sponge cake layer and…
2…spread 2 tbsp of jam evenly.
3.Cut strawberries in slices and layer them over the jam.
4.Take a couple of spoons of whipped cream and add on top of the strawberries.
5.Take the second sponge cake layer and repeat steps 2.-4. and sit ontop of the first layer.
6.Take the last layer, add jam, strawberries and whipped cream, add a couple of whole strawberries in the center of the cake, sprinkle with daisies.

 

 

The cake is best prepared for the same day. The whipped cream doesn’t look so nice anymore after one day in the fridge. I also thought, that this was a perfect cake for Mothers Day.

 

 

Here is another great idea for strawberries- a strawberry chocolate bar! And check out these super cute muffins made with red fondant!

 

Before I forget- I made digital washi tape with a strawberry texture. You can download it here

A happy Thursday! Cheers,
