I didn't plan what I was going to make that day, in fact I bake cakes so I can decorate it.
I just let everyone else eat it.
Can you resist?
I find the classic strawberry gateau a bit plain, so I jazzed up the cream to make it pink.
Don't you think it looks pretty?
Lots of roasted hazelnuts around the cake and fresh strawberries.
I really enjoyed making these cakes.
Adding a few drops of red food gel into freshly whipped cream gives this cake a pretty pink colour.
Piped rosettes around the cake as the border and finished with mini marshmallows, ripe strawberries & drizzle with melted chocolate sauce.
I decided to cut this cake into half so there's more sponge and less cream to eat.
