Strawberry and Cake





Besides using strawberry for the topping, it's a good idea to dice them as cake filling so that there's some in every slice of the cake. I decided to give it a try after seeing it done in a few episodes of Cake Boss. I think the strawberries subdue the sweetness and richness of these cake and cheesecake. But, the tricky part of using strawberry is that you should use whip cream for the topping, and trying to smooth the topping is not so easy.

The cake in these pics were made a few weeks ago using M'sian CH and Korean strawberries. My favorite Driscoll strawberry is available at the nearby Giant store this week, and at a reasonable price, thanks to the current forex rate i guess.

Salam, Kak Anna.
Drsicoll strawberry RM11.90 consider mahal @ murah?

Anna @ Bakeryna said...

Salam Azreena,
U can get 250g @ RM9.90 or slightly lower at most hypermarkets. It was RM16.90 earlier this year. Their sberries are a lot bigger this season, fertilized with steroid kot... LOL

Your best bet will be J Jusco in Perda, i never failed to find strawberry & raspberry there. Try to buy only one or two days before u need to use them. I prefer to put sberry on whipped cream layer now, bcoz it sometimes gives a funny taste to the choc fudge layer.
