World Peace Cake

    Newer Older

    Also known as Strawberry Dream Cake. I have eaten a lot of cake over my 28 years, I have also baked a lot of cake, and I think that this might be my absolute favorite, ever. I love it so much that I will make the bold claim that it would bring about world peace if everyone were to eat a slice. The world would sit back in their individual chairs, sigh, and say, "oh yeah, what is it that was upsetting us? yeah no idea. This cake is awesome. The whipped cream-cream cheese frosting that is ever-so lightly sweetened is pretty much the best thing ever, and I love the juicy berries in the center, and don't those berries on the outside make for a nice presentation?"

    Danielle spotted this cake on Lauren's beautiful stream, posted it to my Facebook wall, and then I drooled all over my keyboard, and said something along the lines of, "OMG WHEN DO WE MAKE THIS GAHAEHDHDHRDROOOOL." And so Danielle came over with a bundle of flowers, and we set to work making it, and photographing it, and a few other shenanigans, and then we ate it, and there were sighs and silence, and some confused looks of, "how can a cake be so wonderful?"

    Seriously, it's good stuff, well worth the time. I was even going to attempt to rewrite the book of Genesis about it, but I'm not quite that clever.

      Somehow it seems unfair that science has not been able to invent a quantum teleportation device (of Star Trek fame) for all of us that should be someplace else, like.......right now!

      This cake is abundantly scrumptious looking and decadent beyond words :)

      I think it looks good enough for an attempted rewrite. Yumzers.

      Colourful flowers and a colourful cake, Katie. Could you imagine being allergic to strawberries? That would be ever so tragic. The two of you have made a great looking cake and I support your name for it. :-)

      That might be the best description of this cake, or any cake for that matter, that I've ever read. I'm so glad other people are enjoying it. You guys did a beautiful job of making it and capturing it!

      That looks good, and I'm not even a strawberry and cream cake believer.
      I love the angle in the second shot the most.

      Strawberries + cake always equals wonderful for me. Add a cream-cheese frosting and we're in heaven.
