EGGLESS STRAWBERRY CAKE

EGGLESS STRAWBERRY CAKE

I just cannot decorate cakes to save my life so i have actually given up trying. I just bake my cake, top it with whatever frosting comes to my mind or what ingredients i have at home and we all eat it 🙂 Frankly with my “recipe a day” concept i dont get much time to do a lot. I try to please as much as i can , but for me a cake that has taken hours and hours to decorate should be kept in a showcase and not cut! Okay jokes apart… this recipe is my own creation which i just decided to make on the spur of the moment. The cake is an eggless sponge cake for the recipe please see HERE . I just used a few drops of almond essence which i bought from Lidl.
FOR THE STRAWBERRY TOPPING:
250 grams of strawberries, washed and stems removed plus a few more for decoration
75 grams of philadelphia cream cheese, at room temperature
75 grams of whipping cream ( i used one which has over 33% fat), chilled
3 tablespoons of powdered sugar or more to taste ( i used my bullet to powder the sugar)
METHOD:
Bake the eggless cake as per my recipe and let it cool completely. While its cooling or even better while its baking lets make the frosting.
I first put the cream cheese and half the sugar into my bullet and pulsed it till fluffy. About 2-3 pulses. I removed it and kept it aside. I then put the chilled cream and the other half of the sugar and pulsed it for about 6-7 times till the cream gets fluffy. I then added the chopped strawberries and pulsed it till it was well blended and looked like a lovely pink cream. I then mixed the pink cream with the cream cheese by hand till well blended. I left it in the fridge to cool. I then sliced my cake in half carefully while saying a prayer for it to be perfect. I sandwiched it with this lovely pink cream and carefully put the other layer of cake on the top saying another prayer. Then i pressed it gently and spread the rest of the cream on top of the cake and on the sides. I then cut a few strawberries into slices and tried to “decorate” the cake. Thats it! Phew…i then thanked the lord that i could actually get a decent looking cake that tasted out of the world 🙂
NITU DIDI TIP:
This makes quite a bit of cream. My daughter ate it up on its own also, it tastes like a strawberry mousse, and that too eggless 🙂
Which cream should you use??
