Cooking For Tuesdays

Just a little of what I like to cook.

TWD french strawberry cake

on June 28, 2012

yep, i’m over a week late. been just.. well, as a great song goes, there ain’t no cure for the summertime blues!

not much to say about this one. it was good. yummy! but, i’m still not sure if it was worth the time it took to whip the eggs and the cream.

it was pretty cool to have homemade whipped cream, yum! but, it took quite a bit of arm work! (i didn’t wash the whisk attachment of my mixer)

anyway, on to pics!

batter took quite a bit of time to get it right!

the strawberries almost didn’t make it to the cake!!

Photobucket

the cake cooling. it turned out kind of dense and thin. i wasn’t sure if i would be able to cut it into halves, let alone thirds!

Photobucket

my little strawberry thief! she had just come in from outside (hence the dirty face and hands!) and i turned around and caught her reaching into the bowl and snagging strawberries while the cake cooled! i don’t know how many she got, but i used them anyway. we haven’t died yet from her grubby hands, so i guess we’ll be fine.

my husband worked his kitchen magic yet again πŸ™‚ he was able to cut that thin cake in half! yay!

20 minutes of whipping the cream…

Photobucket

i had plenty of berries, even after the berry theft, so instead of using fresh berries on top, i just put the juiced ones on. maybe not as pretty, but yum!

Photobucket

i may have had the cream a little too think on top and in the middle, but yum!!

the cake was a hit, but not something i would do all the time. unless it needs to be homemade, i will likely just use cool whip and shortcake next time. i loved the recipe, but for the time it took, i will go store bought unless it’s for a special occasion. πŸ™‚
