STRAWBERRIES CAKE WITH WHIPPED CREAM


Well...I should said that this is my first time doing a cake with decorations without any experience. I just do it with my heart and my brain.


Although the decoration is not so neat but I will keep up my good work.


Recently, I was thinking of launching my cooking business because most of my friends and family who had tried my food, said that I should do a catering and bakery business.

The cake is made of butter, cake flour, milk, eggs and sugar. The cake is so soft and light and I decorated it with some fresh strawberries ( now is the season for fresh strawberries and they are so sweet ) and heavy whipped cream.


Look at that cake!!! My kids just love it and they had almost half of the 9" cake.

Below is the recipe for this cake.



INGREDIENTS :

For the cake:
50 g butter
67 g cake flour
75 ml fresh milk
5 egg yolks
5 egg whites
67 g sugar
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
a pinch of salt

For Whipped Cream
320 ml heavy whipping cream
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1 tbsp strawberry liquor

For Decoration
1 lb fresh strawberries
some simple syrup


METHOD :

1. Melt butter over low heat, remove from heat when melt. Then in a medium bowl, add in the egg yolks, milk, salt and cake flour. Stir in constantly until well combined and set aside.

2. In a mixing bowl, add in the egg whites and cream of tartar. In a high speed, beat until foamy. Then add in the sugar and beat until soft peak formed.

3. Fold the white white mixture into the egg yolk mixture until well combined. Then pour the cake mixture into greased 9" cake pan.

4. Bake the cake at preheated oven 320 F for 30 minutes. Place the cake upside-down on the rack when removed from the oven. Let it cool completely.

5. Meanwhile, whipped the cream with sugar until soft peak and set aside.

6. Place the cake on the flat surface, cut the top off and slice the cake into 2 layers. Place a layer of the cake on the cake board with some buttercream in the middle to prevent the cake from moving. Then brush the syrup on the top layer. Spread a thin layer of whipped cream on the 1st layer and add some halves strawberries. Fill the gap with some more whipped cream and cover it with the last layer of cake.

7. Brush the top layer with some syrup and spread the whipped cream all over the cake. Decorate it as you wish and keep in the cake in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes before serving.
