Strawberry Drip Cake
We all love strawberries and white chocolate together, right?
That's exactly what I've done here. I've baked the most delicious strawberry cake and covered it with the most luxurious and tasty white chocolate buttercream, both recipes by the Sugar Geek Show.
The cake has an amazing strawberry flavour, without being overwhelmed and do I really need to talk about the white chocolate??? Yummm!!!
I wanted the cake to be fun and also fully edible, so all the de decorations are, well, edible.
To make the macarons more fun, I just added some colour to it, with Rainbow Dust colour. Mixing their dusts with some vodka and using the metallic Paint and Pain it! Paint, I just had some fun with it. Here you have a little time lapse of it:
Meringues and chocolate toppers were the other decorations I used. I'll have them up soon here on the blog, both the recipe for the strawberry meringues and a little time lapse on how I did the chocolate decorations. And of course... It was not a drip cake without the drip right? I followed the Sugar Geek Show recipe and add a little of Rainbow Dust ProGel in lemon.
I had a lot of fun doing this cake. Most of the time, I just went with the flow. Sometimes is better to not think much about the final result, and just have fun!! Oh, and did I mentioned I had a big, huge, fail with the drip?? No?? Well, here you have it:
Fun right? I didn't find it too fun at the moment... But well, life goes on and so did I with the cake. Let's just thank to drip for being very forgiving and not perfect haha
To end, just a little of edible gold leaf here and there, to add some fun accents to the cake.
Here you have the time lapse for this cake. I wish I work this fast.
And here are the recipes:
If you're in the UK, here are some tips:
instead of the Amoretti wild strawberry jam, I used Saracino Jelly Paste in strawberry
we don't have the half and half, so I used single cream which is the equivalent
also, we don't have a specific cake flour, as the US, so here in the UK, you can use AP flour instead of the cake flour
I couldn't find the créme bouquet, so I didn't add to the buttercream (let me know if you find it here ok?)
Also, I'm following their "way" of preparing the cake, like torting, levelling, crumb coating, upside down method... So, if you want to learn these things too, make sure to become a Sugar Geek member today here!! You'll get access FOREVER to amazing tutorials.
