Intro: Kit Kat Fruit Cake
This is a cake you can make when you are short on time but you still want to "wow" your guests. It's fun to look at, tasty and quick to decorate...
Here are the steps:
Step 1: Bake 2 round cakes (dimensions: 8 by3). I made a chocolate cake.
Step 2: Once they have cooled, stack them on top of each other. Make sure your cake is sitting on a sturdy cake board since this cake will get heavy.
Step 3: Ice your cake completely in frosting. I used vanilla buttercream frosting.
Step 4: Unwrap all of your Kit-Kat bars and start sticking them around your cake. The frosting acts like glue.
Step 5: To hold all the Kit-Kats in place, tie ribbons around them for extra support.
Step 6: Wash your strawberries and blackberries and pat them dry with a paper towel.
Step 7: Cut your strawberries lengthwise and place them on a paper towel so that all those juices can get absorbed. The last thing you need is drippy strawberries… it can make your cake too soft and “mushy.”
Step 8: Arrange the strawberries in a circular pattern on top of the cake. Place the blackberries in the center. Top it all off with a mint leaf.
And you are done!
