I'm making a cheer cake to feed over 100 people and I made the Moussaline Buttercream (it's IMB) from the Cake Bible and added the Cake Bible strawberry puree....oh...YUM, YUM!! I'm in heaven!!!

I'm making the cheer cake from Wilton but I didn't have a square pan so I'm using a double layer 12x18 sheet pan and stacking on top of it a double layer 11x15 sheet pan (should feed 132 people). What do you think? Will it look okay?

Do you have a picture you could post of the cheer cake from Wilton? The cake itself sounds divine! icon_smile.gif As long as a cake tastes good looks come in last so don't worry to much I'm sure it will turn out just fine!

I'm sorry when I said "cheer" cake I meant it will have cheerleaders on it. It will be a yellow cake with the delicious strawberry buttercream and IMB.

I would love to have the recipe also. I have a really good friend who works for Child Welfare. She loves strawberry cake. There just aren't too many good reipes. I'd love to make her a cake with that icing. She really has a difficult job and I try to give her a cake to brighten her day a little.

i want the recipe--please PM me please

This recipe is in "The Cake Bible". If you don't have it you need to put in on your Christmast wish list! For the frosting you can use any IMB recipe. For the Strawberry Puree:

Makes 1 1/4 Cups

20 oz. Frozen unsweetened whole strawberries
2 tsps lemon juice, freshly sqeezed
Optional: 1/4 Cup sugar

Place frozen berries in a strainer over a deep bowl to thaw completely. Press if necessary, to force out the juice. You should have close to 1 1/4 Cups ( Your kitchen will smell so good from the fragrance of the strawberries)
In a microwave bowl on high, boil juice to reduce to 1/4 Cup. You can use a sauce pan but she says the microwave produces the purest flavor.
In a food processor puree the strawberries. You should have about 1 cup. Stir in the lemon juice and syrup. If you want to sweeten it add the sugar.
I added 2 cups of the puree to 8 cups of buttercream. YUM!

Don't mean to sound stupid, but what is IMB?? Italian Meringue? If so, is there a recipe for that in the "Cake Bible"? I am going to Books-A-Million this weekend to get it, call it an early present for myself.LOL
