“This stripe cake is an absolute eye catcher, but actually not too complicated to bake at home. The most important thing is to let the cake rest in the fridge long enough. This is how you'll create the perfect stripe look! If you can't find blackberries, just switch them out with raspberries.”

  • Step 3/4

    Add blackberries to a liquid measuring cup and purée until smooth. Pass through a fine sieve set over a saucepan. Add remaining sugar and heat the mixture over medium heat. In the meantime, beat egg whites and some salt in the bowl of a stand mixer until stiff peaks form. Remove the blackberry syrup from heat as soon as it reaches 115°C/240°F. While beating the egg whites, slowly add the blackberry syrup. Keep beating until the mixture is at room temperature, then add diced butter (bit by bit) and keep beating to form a buttercream.
