  • Difficulty: • •
  • Cost: $$$$
  • For Ages: 15+
  • Origin:

This Strawberry Glaze is the final touch for the Strawberry Cake, suitable for Pentecost. This is a very special cake, a glorified strawberry shortcake, a descendant of the French apricot rum cake. It is often used as the festive cake of France, and the Holy Spirit undoubtedly inspired the baker who first conceived it. Its frosting is as red as the tongues of fire that descended on the apostles, as red as the vestments at Mass on Pentecost. This can be made the night before. This is also a perfect dessert for a summer picnic or celebration for hot weather feast day.

DIRECTIONS

Briefly cook mashed berries with sugar. After the Strawberry Cake has absorbed the rum sauce, then set the cake on a serving plate and spread the top with the Strawberry Glaze. Use the whole strawberries to decorate the cake.
