Domed Cherries and Raspberries Layer Cake

Domed Cherries and Raspberries Shortcake. Cake designers; does it ever happen to you that a design you have in mind doesn’t always end up how you imagined? Let me tell you icing domed cakes takes a lot of practice as it is, but I wanted to take it one step ahead and make it a patterned dome 😭 She still turned out pleasing (imho) but I will certainly need to keep practicing. In any case, this cake is filled with cherries compote and iced with raspberry whipped cream. Gotta love my berries 😌 . . #bakingaesthetics #baketok #cozybaking #fypbaking #cottagecoreaesthetic #aestheticbaking #cottagecorebaking #caketoks #cakesoftiktok #cakedecoration

A layer cake with a domed finish, using a flexible cake comb. The tanginess of the raspberries and cherries, pairs wonderfully with the whipped cream and cake’s sweetness. A perfect fruit cake for the summer. Please note that there is some advanced preparation that needs to be followed in order to make this cake, so it may not be the simplest of cakes, in terms of total preparation time and technique.
