When we ask the little girl what cake she wants, she always gives the same answer –
BLACK CHOCOLATE CAKE WITH STRAWBERRY FROSTING
She is very particular too, she wants REAL strawberry frosting!
So, even if my right arm will hurt like *#&& the day after, I willingly suffer because it is what she wants on her special day.
The recipe for the black chocolate cake is a family secret – as it took me several months to get it just right!
The strawberry frosting is made with 450 grams of strawberries!!! I experimented with the recipe for a long time, playing with the proportions until the little girl was satisfied. She has a discriminating taste!
This year though I decided to make a few improvements…
Firstly, I made a smaller cake, a 7-inch, 3-layer round cake instead of the usual 9-inch, 2-layer round cake. Then I added a special filling – dark choco-caramel filling. Lastly, the finishing touch – the “My Little Pony” theme!
The finished cake was declared BEE-YOO-TEE-FOOOOL by the little girl. And I am happy even if my arm is still and achy!
And the taste? Whooooohooooo! Everyone says it is sinfully delicious!
(happy, happy, happy me!)
