Baking a Strawberry Milkshake Whopper Marshmallow Cake
As I wrote before, baking is one of my favourite things. Whenever I can I take courses, mostly when I'm in London, and I'm thinking about opening an internet store in Athens some day. But for now I just bake in every opportunity and I take photos of the process and then I organize tastings with friends and family so I can have a feedback of what they like and what they don't. Although my most feared and severe critic is my son who, through time has developed a very fine and educated palate. Maybe one day will follow in the footsteps of his father, who is one of the best food and wine critics in Greece.
So, few days ago I decided to try a new recipe that I discovered in Pinterest. I fell in love with the look of the cake, it was pink, and fluffy, and girly and I just had to taste it.
(Here is the original photo as shown on the blog with the recipe.)
I had to wait for some days until I get my hands on the Whoppers that I ordered from Cybercandy, but then everything went smoothly, even the Swiss meringue that I had never tried before.
(Project in process... Two different cake batters - a pink and a white one- for two layers of vanilla cake made from scratch, and Swiss meringue with vanilla flavour and light pink colour)
I followed the recipe to the letter and the result was stunning.. And although it was a little too sweet for my taste, I'm pretty sure that it will make an amazing birthday cake for anyone who likes or feels pink.
