Introduction: Strawberry Flower - Chocolate Cake

About: Hi! I am Klinong, that is how my loving family calls me, except my brother, he calls me Krinyol, as I have silly curly hair :) I love Instructables for forever now, especially for the contests ha-ha!, but I …

Instead serving chocolate cake as is, decorate it simple way, with strawberry slices!

Step 1: Coring Strawberries

You can use knife obviously, but by using a firm straw, the hole would be the same size for each strawberry.

Just remove the leaves and/or stems and push in your straw, voila

Halved, then slice each halves thinly as shown on the last picture.

Step 2: Chocolate Cake

This is a chocolate cake that I learned while living in Hungary. Many variety of chocolate cakes of course, and you can use your own favorite chocolate cake!

Csokoladetorta (cake)

100 g chocolate (milk)

100 g butter (dont substitute)

160 g icing sugar

7 eggs

150 flour

Melt chocolate and let it cool to room temperature

Beat butter and icing sugar then add in yolk one at a time

Once all yolks is added in, pour in melted chocolate and beat for 20 minutes

In another bowl, beat egg whites until stiff then fold in flour a little at a time, folding it lightly

Mix the yolk mixture and white mixture, folding lightly

Pour batter into 2 9 inch round pan and bake at 350 F for 30 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean (please do watch out for your oven temperature. each oven has differ temperature and sometimes the accuracy is not reliable unless you have oven temperature measurement)

Cool on rack

Chocolate Glaze

3 eggs

210 g icing sugar

150 g butter

50 g chocolate

Crack the eggs into a bowl and add in icing sugar.

Over steam (double boiler), mix them until thickened

Melt chocolate and butter then add into lukewarm eggs

Keep stirring until cool to room temperature

Final Cake

Stack the cakes and between layers spread some peach jam. Once stack, pour chocolate glaze from top and covering side as well

You can decorate with strawberry slices right away or wait a bit until glaze is firming on cake (so strawberry wont slide down)

Slice and enjoy~
