A few weeks ago I got it in my head that I had to try and make a special Canada Day Dessert. I couldn’t stop thinking of my Aunts traditional Canada flag cake, but I knew that I couldn’t get a crucial part of it here so I set about coming up with something new. With it being the start to Quebec’s Strawberry season there isn’t a better time to try a new strawberry recipe.
I came up with this…
- Bake a Betty Crocker Cake according to instructions. I used a while cake mix, but I think the pecan cake would be divine in this too. Bake it in cup cakes or do what I did and bake a 9X12 sheet cake.
- Use a cup to cut cake into circles then cut them in half horizontally so you have 2 circles (or cut cupcakes in half).
- Whip up some fresh cream I add about a tbsp of icing sugar to 1/2 L of whipping cream.
- Layer in a cup whipped cream, berries, cake until you reach the top edge. Add a final scoop of whipped cream and a berry to garnish. I was aiming for a Canada Flag look but as you can see it fell a bit short.
