This year I was spoilt for choice since I had 2 boxes of delicious strawberries on hand as they are just showing up in the market. Also have been fortunate enough to receive many new baking books I was itching to try out, and exciting dessert ideas off blogs and web sites. This is what the holiday season does to you; spoils you with so much visible eye candy, that you want to try everything at once. Strawberries in the market doesn't seem to make it simpler, just widens the horizon!
My cake was inspired in spirit by Summertime Strawberry Cake by Roland Meisner.
I tried a new form of cake decoration this time ... a white chocolate piped border. The white chocolate we get here doesn't melt as easily and smoothly as the dark chocolate, so it wasn't a very easy task. I managed something anyway, and I've included a how-to on my blog post. I have done it many times thereafter. It works beautifully.
