I'm looking for ideas for a birthday cake for my Dad. He likes chocolate, so I suppose I'll make choc layers, but I was thinking about flavoring my standard 7 minute frosting w/ fresh strawberry purree and then topping the cake w/ choc covered berries. I've never flavored my 7 -minute before, but I've read it's possible. Seems like I read that on Chowhound, but can't find the thread now.
I don't care for buttercreams and I make ganache frosting for him a bunch.
Alternatively, Do you think strawberry cake and a sour cream fudge frosting would be good? Thanks.
