Description (Some HTML is OK)

This strawberry cake frosting oozes a fresh strawberry taste. Very sweet and decadent.


Ingredients

Makes 8 servings

  • 1 punnet strawberries
  • 2 tbsp caster sugar
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 oz butter
  • icing sugar (lots)
  • pink food colouring (optional)
  • 150ml double cream

Preparation (Some HTML is OK)

First you need to make some 'essence of strawberries'. To do this, hull and roughly chop all your strawberries. Sprinkle on 2 tbsp caster sugar and squeeze on the juice of a lemon. Gently toss the lemon juice and sugar through the strawberries and leave for at least an hour, preferably over night.
Once the strawberries have macerated they will produce a pink sweet strawberry syrup.
Spoon 3 tbsp of syrup into a mixing bowl, add 3 tbsp icing sugar and add the butter at room temperature. Cream together until you get a smooth paste. Add more icing sugar now (about another 3 tbsp?) and mix again. Now add 150ml double cream and cream until it makes soft peaks (an electric mixer is recommended here). If you want it to be pinker than a very pale pink I would recommend adding a few drops of pink food colouring and stir again.

Smooth over a traditional victoria sponge cake filled with whipped cream and strawberry jam and top with fresh real strawberries just before serving for an extra strawberry hit.
