Evy's Birthday Cake: Marshmallow Cake
I asked Evy what cake she wants for her birthday, a store-bought cake or a cake mommy made for her, at first she said she wanted a store-bought cake but later changed her mind to a marshmallow cake. So I said okay and since the strawberry was in season again, large and sweet, why not make a strawberry chiffon cake again and decorated it with whipped cream. Just like a cake I made for her last year except this time will have some marshmallow on the cake. When I started to decorate the cake, she said she wanted a smiley face marshmallow cake, so here's her smiley face marshmallow cake for her 5th year old birthday.
Another look of my tall chiffon cake. Can you see the smiley face?
This time I made it three layers with two layers of whipped cream with strawberry bits.
I definitely added too much red coloring as this cake is redder compared to my previous one. This time I also used 2 cups of fresh whipped cream plus 1/3 cup of confectioner sugar to ice the cake. Remember to place the bowl and beaters in the refrigerator before you whip the cream. The whipped cream beats best when the bowl and beaters are cold.
Note: The marshmallow turned soft the next day but nevertheless still delicious.
I realized I haven't shared the pictures of my girls for quite some time, so here are the most updated pictures of them saying Hi.
