my friend's birthday was a few weeks ago, and i was in charge of the birthday cake.  she wanted a chocolate cake with strawberries, and left the details up to me.


this is what i ended up with:


it's a 4 layer chocolate cake (martha stewart recipe).  two layers were filled with whipped cream with sliced strawberries.  the center layer was filled with chocolate ganache with diced strawberries.  the whole cake was covered in ganache.  the top was covered with a layer of buttercream frosting and decorated with strawberries and chocolate covered strawberries.

the cake weighed in at 5 pounds.

the process:

whipped cream layer:



ganache layer:


chocolate covered strawberries:



i really wanted to get a shot of the cut cake, but it was eaten at a bar and the lighting just wasn't on my side.
