imageOn one of our trips to the library I saw this book, “Layered“,  on the display and grabbed it.  Even if we never made anything out of it I knew it’d be fun to look at with my daughter.  But, of course we saw several recipes we’d like to try.  This is one of them.  Of course, I converted it to GF and made it my own a bit, but we got the idea from this cookbook.  My youngest chose this as his birthday cake.

Strawberry Preserves
Buttercream Frosting
Chocolate Ganache
Strawberries dipped in chocolate – melt chocolate chips – I used about a cup and then dipped the strawberries in and let them set up on wax paper.
