Just so you know I’m not making it up!
My camera sucks in capturing the beautiful pink shade of the buttercream flecked with red and black from the strawberry puree. I placed around the bottom and in the middle top some of the royal icing roses and flowers I’d had stored up for just these sorts of occasions.
They didn’t give me a chance to decorate the plates with the leftover sweetened strawberry puree but the cake was so delicate and with a deliciously sweet crumb. The buttercream… OMG the buttercream. I’ve never been a fan of the stuff but since The Cake Bible taught me that doing it the longer way with the eggs and the sugar syrup and the much beating… well, I’ve learned to love it.
Well, I love it when I’m getting it right not… otherwise.
