Step 1: Bake 2 round cakes (dimensions: 8 by3). I made a chocolate cake using this recipe.
Step 2: Once they have cooled, stack them on top of each other. Make sure your cake is sitting on a sturdy cake board since this cake will get heavy.
Step 3: Ice your cake completely in frosting. I used chocolate buttercream frosting.
Step 4: Unwrap all of your Kit-Kat bars and start sticking them around your cake. The frosting acts like glue.
Step 5: To hold all the Kit-Kats in place, tie ribbons around them for extra support.
Step 6: Wash your strawberries and blackberries and pat them dry with a paper towel.
Step 7: Cut your strawberries lengthwise and place them on a paper towel so that all those juices can get absorbed. The last thing you need is drippy strawberries… it can make your cake too soft and “mushy.”
Step 8: Arrange the strawberries in a circular pattern on top of the cake. Place the blackberries in the center. Top it all off with a mint leaf.
And you are done!
Since this cake is covered in fruits, I highly advise you to keep it in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve. This will help your cake look fresh and taste fresh for longer.
Now, go ahead and make your own. You can use different types of berries if you want or you can even try using different chocolate bars around the cake. I mean… it’s a cool cake so have fun with it!
