FOOD FUN: Strawberry Cake With Strawberry Heart-Shaped Macarons

Steph, a blogger in Sydney, Australia, created this masterpiece: a fluffy vanilla cake layered with strawberry and balsamic vinegar icing, topped with heart-shaped macarons filled with the same icing strawberry-balsamic icing.

The recipe is on her website, RaspberriCupcakes.com.

In Italy, fresh strawberries with a few drops of fine aged balsamic vinegar are a popular dessert. Steph loves the combination, and it was a short leap to adding caramelized balsamic vinegar to strawberry buttercream icing.

“All I did was purée the fruit and mix it into my regular buttercream icing, along with that amazing caramelised balsamic vinegar,” says Steph. “It has a gorgeous depth of flavour and a bit of tang from the balsamic. It helped that I [already] had that beautiful sweet and thick balsamic vinegar, which seemed perfect to use in desserts; but you could use any balsamic and adjust the amount you add to the icing until it tastes just right.”

In terms of going the extra mile to make heart-shaped macarons: Steph, we take our hat off to you.
