Ah! How is life going by this fast. I can’t even handle it.
And it appears I’ve grown a year older yet again. And it seems I’ve taken to making my own birthdaycakes. I always make something I haven’t done before. But in all honesty, guys, I love box cake. Not even gonna lie. That shit is fantastic.
But I didn’t even make a box cake. Oh no dear sirs and madams. I made a pretty neat cake.
BEHOLD! The magnificent strawberry pocky cake!
It was so much fun to make. Just so so so so much fun. I got the idea from a picture I saw on Pinterest (oh Pinterest, you sly devil, you).
The layers are of white velvet cake brushed with kirsch syrup, strawberry buttercream, almond dacquoise, jelled strawberry coulis. So good.
In retrospect, I should have sandwiched the jelly between cake or dacquoise, as the moisture caused the buttercream to slide right off. I should have thought about that, but I was too excited to just get it all together and eat it.
EATIN THE CAKE! FLAMES AND ALL!
That montage makes me very happy. Happy Birthday to Me!
