In honor of No Diet Day ( May 6th) here I present to you a fat free cake. I would be totally lying if I didn't admit to the truth about that. Of course it's not fat free, that's just ludicrous. This is a lemon drip cake filled with strawberries and cream, iced it with frosting sure to give you cavities in the first bite, and chocolate ganache poured over the top. The cake represents an ongoing trend known as "drip cake." You build a cake that's impossibly tall to cut and pour melted ganache around the rim to create the "dripping" effect. I absolutely loved building this cake and I encourage anyone who sees this to go and make one too.
Components: 2- 7 inch lemon cake rounds cut in half, 2 Cups strawberries sliced paper thin on mandolin (macerated with sugar), 1 pint whipped cream, Vanilla Icing (Swiss or Italian Meringue), White chocolate, colored purple
