Strawberry Jewel Box Cake

I came up with this recipe for a friend of mine’s birthday. She happened to be a designer, so I knew this cake needed to be as aesthetically pleasing as possible. When it come to preferences, she specified liking lighter cakes with lots of cream and fresh fruit, so I knew I could do something…

Strawberries and cream Mont Blanc

I really wanted to make this Mont Blanc after seeing so many different kinds of them on my discover feed on Instagram. Traditionally, Mont Blanc is made with chestnuts, but I opted for a fresher, strawberry version instead, just to make it appropriate for the summer. So I went with a strawberry chiffon cake, a…

And from there, I wanted to come up with an entire concept that circled around this ice cream. The result: la fraise au trois lait, or the strawberry in three milks. I wanted…
