Strawberry Filled Chocolate Cake


Yesterday, i made something new and different! It was a simple chocolate cake that was soaked in a raspberry sugar syrup and filled with homemade whipped cream and fresh organic strawberries. It was a six inch cake that was cut into 2 layers. The sugar syrup was made by boiling sugar and water together and then adding a little bit of raspberry extract. It keeps the cake from drying out and makes the cake softer. I whipped some whipping cream and added a bit of powdered sugar for sweetness. After that, I added finely chopped strawberries into the whipped cream and slathered it in between the 2 layers. I decorated the cake with plain sweetened whipped cream and fresh strawberries. To find the recipe of the sugar syrup look below the pics or in Recipes.

Here are a couple of pictures I took:
