My dear niece Arianna turned 2 this year and her given theme for me this year is "STRAWBERRY"
Her mom said, she loves strawberries. So, I made her this. A strawberry cake literally.
I didn't want to use any food colouring and so I used fruits to 'colour' the cake and make it look like a strawberry.
Two different boxes of strawberries gave the cake 2 tones, compared from top to bottom. It doesn't look perfect, but the kid is happy and parents are happy too...
The best is, it's artificial colouring free :)
This is what I did, you can do it your way, your version.
The cake: Vanilla Sponge (any recipe you like), trimmed from a square cake. Fill before you trim.
Filling: Dairy whipped cream with sliced strawberries (it looks this way inside )
Topping: Strawberry slices and kiwi slices
Glaze: Instant Jelly (refer here, but without the herbs)
