Chocolate Covered Strawberry Cake


                                        





                                            
 This is the Chocolate Covered Strawberry Cake from Rose's Heavenly Cakes made into a single layer and eight large cupcakes.  The white chocolate cake is filled with strawberry mousseline and strawberry butter then topped with a dark chocolate glaze frosting.  These three flavors complement each other nicely.  I used Lindt White Chocolate with coconut which added an extra playful element.  I very much would like to say the strawberry butter was whipped up with strawberries from my little backyard patch, however this is the one lone berry.

The cupcakes were sent out the door.  Much too tempting!


I've been tempted enough this week.  Meet Daisy, an eight week old Chihuahua.  She is for my eldest granddaughter who patiently, and not so patiently, waited five years for her very own puppy.
