I have a client who wants a Strawberry shortcake biscuit WEDDING CAKE. is this even possible? i know you can make strawberry shortcake with a cake recipe but they want a weddign cake made of the biscuit recipe....any good ideas here???
It's an interesting and creative concept. Your client may or may not fully understand the implications of her idea. It would be good to walk her through what the dessert would look like when presented. Offer some variations, such as several larger shortcakes that can be cut, or a mix of small and large shortcakes, or a small wedding cake filled with strawberries and iced with whipped cream plus mini shortcakes to equal enough servings. Or any combination of these.
Seems like the biscuit part would crumble. I wonder if you can convince her to do individual desserts. I've done a large strawberry shortcake type of wedding cake a couple of times. But, I use my pound cake recipe ~ which holds together beautifully. I believe there might be pictures in my "photos".
edit to add: I have an example on page 5 in my photos. That one has raspberries too. But, you get the idea. I've done it with all strawberries, without problems.
Ask the customer to accept that this won't be stacked--use the cake stand that holds each tier separate.
Make very rich biscuits using a scone recipe that won't crumble as fast. Bake in pans in 2 thin layers per tier.
Make a strawberry filling using firm gelatin (3 ounce pack jello and 1.5 cups total liquid) to hold the berry slices together. Prechill 1" deep in the same pans as the scones.
Make a vanilla bavarian filling also chilled 1" deep in the same pans.
Assemble per tier, a scone, a strawberry layer, a bavarian layer, a scone.
Top with stabilized whipped cream and pipe decorations. Add strawberry slices in flower patterns...
