Woah there--that's pretty. Pretty Delish.

I love to spoil the people I love. So when my fiance had a birthday this summer, I wanted to do something very special for him.

Strawberry Cake with White Chocolate Frosting and chocolate hazelnut filling. All his favorite things in one cake. I'll just let the pictures do the talking.

First step, mix the butter, sugar and flower

Next step puree fresh strawberries.

Add them together


Smells like strawberry fields. Looks sort of like them too...


My fiance fell in love with this while he was on mission in Italy. I fell in love with him while on a trip in Italy.

The cake emerges! It was light and sweet and tastes like strawberries.

Add the chocolate hazelnut filling.

Slice fresh strawberries

Place in center of cake on top of filling

Admire. Try not to drool

Using white chocolate. Which isn't really chocolate at all, but it's my fiance's favorite...



Mix in the proper ingredients for a smooth and sweet frosting.

Add second layer of cake

Frost that cake.
 This cake was legendary. And a huge hit at his birthday party. In fact, there were so many people there (his extended family all came up so even the little cousins, mentioned previously were there). Not planning on so many people, I was surprised how far we were able to share this. However, I did manage to save him a nice big slice for later. Sorry family for the little slices, but Jared comes first.

Decorate. With sliced strawberries and melted chocolate. Proper dark chocolate. Sorry Jared, dark chocolate wins every time.

    "Hey, that's my bowl!"
    "That's my red spatula!"
    "Ha ha, those are my pans, too!"
    "...and my cutting board!"
    "I miss Alex using my things..."
    Miss you, girl! Hope all is well!
