Turning 40 can be scary, so I wanted to make it more glamorous with a fun birthday cake! I’ve been on a pretty epic health journey, so I wanted to make this cake as low in sugar as I could, but still make it delicious. Here’s what I used….
Cake: Swerve Sweets Vanilla Cake Mix (2 boxes to make 2 layers)
Frosting: This Strawberry Frosting Recipe… I used frozen strawberries that a thawed, and I used Lakanto Powdered sugar substitute because I like the idea of using some monkfruit. I also strained the strawberry puree to make the frosting smoother. I also used Ghee instead of butter because I heard it was better for you and I had done that with chocolate frosting a while back and loved the flavor.
Filling: My favorite strawberry jam, Stonewall Kitchen Strawberry Jam
I decorated the cake with rosettes (it was my first time, and this frosting was a little too soft for them, but I think they came out okay), using this instructional video and my Wiltons 2D tip.
I couldn’t resist this cake topper… rose gold and crystals!
This cake perfectly represents me… over the top feminine, healthy with just enough sugar to be sweet, and completely self made
