Working Method

Melt coating chocolate.  Dip strawberries in prepared chocolate and place on a parchment lined sheet tray: reserve in the cooler. 

Prepare sponge cake mix according to manufacturer’s instructions.  Spray and paper 8-inch round cake pans and deposit 12 oz. batter into each.  Bake at 350°F until golden brown and cake springs back lightly when touched.  Let cool completely.  Mix together equal parts by weight sweetened condensed milk, evaporated milk, and half & half; for every 1 lb. of liquid mix in 2 oz. strawberry fruit bits.  Weigh cake, pour the same weight prepared milk over cake and let soak in completely.  Mix together 100%  whipped topping, 3.125% strawberry emulsion, and pink food colorings.  Fill and ice cake with prepared whipped topping.  Decorate with rosettes, reserved strawberries and chocolate curls.

Chef Tips

No pre-whipped topping available in your area?  Just order in Dawn Exceptional® VelveTop™ Enhanced Stability Vanilla Whipped Icing and Filling Liquid (00492687) and whip up.  Then sub in the same amount for whipped topping in your favorite recipes.

Would you like to turn this into a sheet cake or individual desserts? Use a deposit of 2 lbs. of batter for each cake and bake in ½ sheet cake pans. After soaking, ice just the top of the cake. Cut into 3.5” x 2.75” rectangles and place in containers. Top with a zigzag of strawberry glitter glaze to finish. Seal container.
