We had crock pot lasagna, Hawaiian mac salad, fruit salad, chicken and rice baked mini burritos and more desserts than you could hope for (2 fruit pies, a lemon bar, chocolate ice cream with peanut butter sauce and a chocolate cake). - we asked each of the four birthday people what they wanted as their "special something".
My youngest sister (who turns 21 TODAY!) asked for a chocolate cake with chocolate frosting and strawberry filling. What my baby sister wants she gets. So here's what I did for her.
|A trick I learned (Martha? Paula?) is to butter and dust your |
cake pans with cocoa powder (for a chocolate cake) this way
you don't have the outsides coated in white flour.
|3 POUNDS of diced strawberries later|
|1/2 of one cake round, chocolate frosting to seal the edges and prevent|
strawberries from spilling out the sides
|Layer all the way up!!|
|Crumb frosting layer|
|ta-da!!! Strawberries on top and white pearls on the sides|
