PRETTY IS AS PRETTY DOES!
When I was little, my grandma would always tell me, “Pretty is as pretty does.” And what she meant by this treasured gem was that it was not enough to be pretty on the outside. Being pretty on the inside was more important. It’s nice to be pretty on the outside but if you’re ugly inside, then you are ugly outside too. So here is a cake that is through and through pretty, from inside to out, just like I hope I am most days. As I roll closer to my birthday, I think about these things and spend a ridiculous amount of time in the bathroom checking out my pores and inspecting for wrinkles and grey hairs all the while my kids pound on the door. I’m eternally grateful to whoever invented door locks.
Anyway, this cake was too spectacular not to try out. It’s summer and strawberries are fresh, juicy and plentiful right now. And chocolate and strawberries go hand in hand. This is like eating a giant chocolate covered strawberry but even better because it’s cake. Make someone feel special with this one today!
