Cake with Berries and KitKat

Hellooooo lovely people!!!

I am finally back in Chicago  and my trip to Canada was fantastic!

I got to hang out with my family and friends and we had such a GREAT time going out, watching movies, shopping, talking and eating! lol 😛

cake with berries and kitkat 9I went there thinking I won’t get a chance to bake but that CHANGED when I decided to visit my mom’s best friend.

She is the LOVELIEST woman ever and I REALLY wanted to bake her a cake.

Since I didn’t have any of my cake supplies, I worked with what I had…

Strawberries

Blackberries

and Kit-Kats!

The cake was very SIMPLE to make and it DIDN’T take too long to make and from what they told me, it tasted DELICIOUS and everyone loved it 😀

You can use DIFFERENT types of berries if you want or you  can even try using different chocolate bars around the cake.

It’s a cool cake… So, have FUN with it!

cake with berries and kitkat 2To make this cake with berries and kitkat, you will need the following ingredients/ supplies:

2 chocolate cakes (Dimensions: 8 x2)
Chocolate buttercream icing
Strawberries (washed and cut in half)
Blackberries (washed)
Few mint leaves
Kit Kats
Ribbon

Note:

I didn’t have enough time to take pictures of each single step like I normally do. But, I have included very detailed instructions and if anything is still unclear, feel free to email me.

And here are the steps:

Step 1:
Bake 2 round chocolate cakes.
Let them cool down and them cut off the dome.

Step 2:
Place one cake on a cake stand and frost the top with chocolate buttercream icing.

Step 3:
Then, place the other cake on top of the icing and press gently so the two cakes stick together.

Note:
If you are not using a cake stand, make sure your cake is sitting on a very sturdy cake board since this cake will get heavy.

Step 4:
Frost your entire cake in chocolate buttercream icing.

Step 5:
Unwrap all of your Kit-Kat bars and start sticking them around your cake.
The frosting acts like glue.

Step 6:
To hold all the Kit-Kats in place, tie two ribbons around them for extra support.
This step is optional.

Step 7:
Wash your strawberries and blackberries and pat them dry with a paper towel.

Step 8:
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 so soft and “mushy.”

Step 9:
Arrange the strawberries in a circular pattern on top of the cake.
Place the blackberries in the center.
Top it all off with  few mint leaves. 

And you are done!

Since this cake is covered in fruits, I highly advise you to keep it in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve.

    I love your cakes and cookies! I agree that making pretty food is THE most creative outlet out there;it affects people on so many levels.
    I do an occasional cake, but not as often as I used to.I owned a bakery, but I have done more for family and friends.I do more fancy cookies any more…fun, aren’t they?
    I thought of posting on cakes, but I’m concentrating on helping people feel confident in hosting and I wouldn’t want to intimidate them…yours certainly would be intimidating to someone who can’t ice a cake,I can tell you!
    Good job, and I’ll be checking in.
    Enjoy the baby,he won’t be little for long!

    Love the kit kat idea. It gives such a fantastic finish. I had never thought of using them in this way. The silver beaded ribbon just finishes it off.
