White Chocolate Strawberry Cake

         This cake is not for the weak at heart! If, like me, you love white chocolate and strawberry, then this will easily become your new favorite cake or dessert. This cake comes out looking very pretty and could be used for special days such as Birthdays, Anniversaries, Groom Dinners or any event you would like. I made this with a vanilla flavored cake mix, but you could use white, yellow or even chocolate.

            As stated, this is not for the weak of heart. To get a cake this delicious does take a little work, but the outcome is well worth the effort. I also make time to freeze my cake layers.

The added moisture helps in the moistness of the final product. When I do this, I cool the cakes in the pans and while they are still slightly warm, I wrap the cake, pan and all with plastic wrap and then foil.

I place them in the freezer for a few hours. For many, decorating a cake that is still partially frozen, makes it much easier to handle also.

Frequently Asked Questions:

            Can I use a prepared box cake mix?

You certainly could. Make sure that you have enough to make the three layers needed.

            Can I use a different fruit?

Yes, I used strawberries because they taste perfect with white chocolate. You could try blueberries, cherry, apple or blackberry. Let me know how they taste.

            How do I store this cake?

Freeze the layers separately before decorating. This helps with the moisture content. After you have completed the cake, I would suggest keeping it covered and in the refrigerator.
