Three Layer Strawberry Cake..
I made this today:
Buttercream 3 Layer Strawberry Cake
The cake is not one of my prettier cakes. I think I let the buttercream get to cold while waiting on the crumb coat to set up.
Rather than buttercream for the two lower layers, I used a simply icing recipe to help set the strawberries in place.
I normally use the buttercream recipe associated with this recipe for this cake– but thought I would use the cream cheese buttercream today. It takes less time. The cake is not bad– but the lighter buttercream I normally use, is better.
So what about my diet and strawberry cakes? I am currently putting in 9.6 miles a day on my elliptical and getting results. I eat whatever I want to eat. That said– this cake is a white cake and I only used egg whites. It’s lighter and because I keep it in the fridge I can keep it longer.
Detect belligerence in the last paragraph? That elliptical is a workout. I love good food and the strawberries were only $1.53 at the market this week. I was going to make strawberry cupcakes but found I had no cups for cupcakes. I normally use light whip cream with the cupcakes.
I really made the cake because I did not want the strawberries to go to waste. I only had a baked potato today with my slice of cake.
I used to be a faster. When I quit smoking 12.5 years ago– it was cold turkey. I am good about exercising. I have will power and do not make excuses. That said– I like living, eating and working hard. Not making excuses. Defensive? Sometimes I wonder if I like hard work too.
Bottom line– I do whatever the hell I want to do– at this time in my life… to many have taken away the things I used to do… I also pay for it. I only have 6.4 miles in so far today… need another 3.2.
