This past week has been super busy but I am so happy to be baking cakes to make peoples' birthday extra special. Today I finally have the time to catch up on Cake with Jackie blog posts!
Today's post will be on Bekari 16.17's BESTSELLER! Can you guess what cake it is? Actually.. You probably know by the title...
Anyway, yes it is the Chocolate and Strawberry Cake! (order this cake here) If you didn't know already, the cakes at Bekari 16.17 are fully customisable - you can choose from what filling you'd like to which extras to add on. You can create your (loved one's) dream birthday cake by pick-and-mixing. Today's cake was for a loved one named Leo.
When asking which design my customer liked for Leo's cake, she chose one with a full top (see below), so I recreated something similar to the photo, with the extras she has added on. Leo's cake was a 6-inch standard, with the Signature Chocolate sponge, filled with cream and strawberries. Leo's cake has added on Chocolate Drip, Raspberries, Blueberries, and Chocolate Macarons (see here for BTS on making the Macarons).
Here is the making of Leo's cake...
This was pretty much a chocolate and mixed berry cake! And of course, it wouldn't be complete without the personalised chocolate plaque...
I think it takes around 20 minutes to assemble a cake on average, sometimes I do take longer because I am a perfectionist when it comes to baking and cakes. But I hope one day I can make a cake in less than 10 minutes... What if I did that as a challenge? Would you like to see that? Let me know if you do!!
I hope you enjoy these Cake with Jackie videos and posts, as it is super fun for me to edit and watch as well! It's super satisfying watching it all come together :)
Hope you all take care and stay safe!! ♡
