This Strawberries and Cream Layer ake looks like a dream and tastes like spring! I love the double dose of strawberry flavor from the cake and the fresh berries between the layers. I've decorated mine with some of my favorite tricks, like chocolate curls and chocolate panels made with transfer sheets, and I've included instructions for making it like mine just in case.
To make the strawberry puree, use approximately 8 oz of fresh or frozen strawberries. (If using frozen, defrost first.) Warm them over medium heat in a saucepan, mashing slightly to let them release their juice. Once warm, blend them in a blender or food processor until liquid, then pour through a fine mesh strainer to remove the seeds. Measure out ½ cup of puree for this recipe, and reserve any extra puree for another use.
