I made this Chocolate Strawberry Pocky Cake for my friend’s birthday! It was a perfect flavor combination for a hot summer outdoor party. I loved making the little Pocky picket fence…
The Pocky sticks surround three layers of chocolate honey cake with chocolate coffee ganache in between each layer. I added a pinch of espresso to the cake batter to make the chocolate flavor a bit more refined. The tweak made it easier to eat more cake!
Strawberries dipped in milk and white chocolate offered a refreshing balance to the rich chocolate cake.
I can’t wait to try this design on cupcakes, one berry per cupcake!
The hardest part about building cakes? Not sampling the final product… Thank god I was invited to the party!
