How to Make a Chocolate Brushstroke Cake

We are so happy to present our first episode from the Cake Decorating series, made in collaboration with our friends from Macarons Boutique, a delightful cake shop that we love. Chocolate Brushstroke Cake has been in trend for several years now but never stops to impress.

The combination of pastel colors of this cake, in white and pink, makes it an exquisite dessert, perfect for any occasion.

The cake layers and frosting are made using our recipe of Caramel Carrot Cake, adapted to 3 layered 7-inch (18cm) and 6-inch (15cm) round cakes.

How to make Chocolate Brushstroke Cake

Start by melting white chocolate over a bain-marie or in the microwave. Stir every 1-2 minutes to prevent burning and use a laser thermometer to check the temperature until it reaches 109°F (43°C).

Pour two thirds of the melted chocolate onto a marble surface. To temper the chocolate, use two spatulas to keep the chocolate in motion until it thickens and reaches 80°F (27°C).

Use the remaining chocolate to color it pink. Pipe chocolate in small circles on acetate sheets and use a brush to create chocolate strokes. Let them set at room temperature.

Once set, remove the cake from the refrigerator and decorate it with the chocolate brushstrokes as desired.

Hope you will try this Chocolate Brushstroke Cake and enjoy it! If you do, make sure to share the photos with me on Instagram. I love seeing how it turns out for you.
