Strawberry Shortcake Torte

No, this isn't on my diet. But yes, I ate some and it's amazeballs. I made this tasty, twirly torte for my sweet mommy on Mother's Day:

Looks hard, but is so not. You bake the cake, let it cool, slather in strawberry whipped goodness, roll it up and garnish! That's really it. I always have tension when recipes have some sort of structural component. I've had several catastrophes when I try to defy physics with edible things.

I didn't have the energy for a full step-by-step recap, so go let Martha teach you, here. Isn't she just the best? On her website she describes this torte with this totally random quote: "Actor David Boreanaz's mother always makes him this delicious strawberry torte on his birthday." First of all, he's sort of an obscure reference to make so proudly. Secondly, how does she know that? Thirdly, who gives a S***? But I digress...

Here's my momma grubbing on it:

It was a hit. Make it. There could be ways to make it lighter...but I didn't.

  1. YUMMMMMM! Girl, that looks FABULOUS. Gonna have to make it soon, now that you've tempted me with it :) Hope things have been great for you, I've been a terrible blogger friend lately, but I'm back in full force and can't wait to catch up on all of your posts :) Happy Wednesday, honey!

  2. Love the flowers in the Rudy's cup.

  3. I was already starving and now it's just insane! I must stop by the grocery store on the way home so I can make this ASAP!


Thanks for the comment! I"m sending you a big cuddly warm bearhug through the interwebs....
