Teacher Appreciation Cake And Cookies!

IMG_2458

We are truly blessed to have some fine teachers in my daughter’s school! I made this three layer moist chocolate cake decorated with strawberry Swiss Meringue Buttercream! I love making a meringue based buttercream, either Swiss or Italian as I find it not overly sweet, fluffy and delicious!! I used a classic chocolate cake recipe, added fresh strawberry puree to SMBC, and finally poured a rich dark chocolate glaze over the top! My daughter’s class teacher loved it!These cookies were inspired by my favorite cookie decorator’s like Jill FCS and Sweetsugarbelle! My favorite are the apples! Which one do you like? . . .
