This white chocolate, strawberry and prosecco cake is a real show stopper for any occasion and tastes absolutely divine! This cake is extremely fluffy and light whilst having a great texture with the crunch of the white chocolate fingers and tangy freshness of the strawberries. You will have to eat it with a fork though, unless you like getting messy!
I’ve been wanting to make this cake for quite a while now and after having a busy few months I have finally gotten round to baking it. My prosecco cupcakes went down a storm so I wanted to make something else that used the same delicious frosting.
We had been invited round to a friends along with Becky, Oli and baby Harry for a homemade pizza night at Amie and Lee’s, along with their two girls Evie and Molly. Dean was very excited to find out they had their own pizza oven in the garden as he’s always talked about having our own one day.
Amie had made her own pizza dough and there were various toppings which we could use to create our own pizza. Dean and I decided to share so we could have a bit of everything. There was chicken, pepperoni, chorizo, cheese, jalapeños, mushrooms, sweetcorn and pesto (I’m sure I’ve missed a few out!) – it was all delicious.
We had a great evening with lots of prosecco to go with the cake. Everyone said how much they enjoyed it so I was really pleased! I think next time I would also put some prosecco frosting inside the cake between the layers, even though it tasted really yummy with the strawberry jam.
The good thing about this cake you can adapt to your own taste and flavours, Dean said we could have finished it with raspberries instead, so you can decorate it with any type of fruit or berries and add any flavour jam. Get creative! I’d love to see what you come up with! 😋
