Strawberry Cake With Sparkling Wine

This moist strawberry cake was the stunning centerpiece at the resort's New Year's eve dessert buffet. The cake was flavored with sparkling wine to complement the occasion. The strawberry arrangement on top looked beautiful and  sharply contrasted the vanilla frosting. A perfect treat for a special occasion.

I used white cake mix for this recipe. It was easy and fast to whip up. All I did was add wine, oil and eggwhites, beat the batter in a few minutes and into the oven it went. I frosted it with vanilla butter cream.

For the individual slices, I baked it in a cookie sheet with shallow sides. I cut out the words "Happy New Year 2015" from rolled fondant and put each letter on each cake. I decorated the rest with strawberry slices.

This was how I arranged the cake on the trays. I finished work before dinner even started but I prepared it in advance. I was afraid whoever would set up the dessert room would not arrange it in the way I wanted.
