  • 200 gms vanilla cake premix & 2 Tbsp oil
  • 1/2 tsp strawberry essence & 1/2 cup & 2 tbsp water
  • 1+1/4 cup chilled whipping cream
  • 1/2 tsp strawberry essence & Pink and green gel food colour
  • Strawberry fruit crush – 2 tbsp & Golden sprinkles



  • Take vanilla cake premix, add 2 TBSP oil, strawberry essence, and water, and mix well to prepare a smooth batter. Line a 6-inch cake tin with baking paper and transfer the cake batter into it.
  • Bake the cake in a preheated oven at 170°C for 30–35 minutes. Meanwhile, take chilled whipping cream, add strawberry essence, and beat it until stiff peaks are formed.
  • Take out 3 spatulas of cream and keep them separate. Add a few drops of pink gel food colouring to the left-over cream and whip to make pink cream. Once the cake is baked and cooled, divide it into 3 parts for frosting.
  • Place the first cake layer on the cake board, moisten with sugar syrup, and apply pink cream. Spread 2 tbsp of strawberry fruit crush on the cream, then place another cake layer and repeat the process.
  • Place the third and final cake layer on top, moisten with sugar syrup, and cover with white whipped cream. Smoothen the cake sides with a card/cake scrapper and smoothen the cake top with a spatula.
  • Take an oil brush and make a pattern with the brush on the cake's sides and top. Take leftover pink cream in a rose petal nozzle and place some cream on the cake top sides. Take a straw and start making roses on it as shown.
  • Place the rose on the cake top over the cream line. Make more roses with a similar method and cover the cake top border with them. Take a piping bag and make a V cut on its tip.
  • Fill it with green cream and make leaves around roses with this piping bag with an open star-shaped nozzle. Make a border on the cake bottom and sprinkle some golden sprinklers.
