Strawberry Blackout Cake

27 Aug

My sister’s leaving for university in the next few days so a going away/early birthday cake was needed.

It was simply a variation on the Raspberry Blackout Cake from Vegan with a Vengeance.  It was delicious!  I decorated it with fresh strawberries (no pic of the cake with the berries because the lighting was horrible last night) and filled it with strawberry jam.  This was actually my first experience with a ganache frosting and I was impressed.  It was so simple and the results were very pretty.

I’m going to miss you, sis!

    Thank you, Celine! She’ll be back for Thanksgiving so it won’t be too long before we’re back together! We’re twins too so it makes all the more harder. This is the second year though we’ve separated so we’re more prepared this time around.

    Thanks for the kind words, VeggieGirl!
