Strawberry Cream Tequila Rose Traybake

Perfect served with a tipple of Strawberry Cream Tequila Rose.
Looking for a fun pink bake? Why not give this pink marbled strawberry traybake a go?
This bake consists of a light and airy traybake flavoured with Strawberry Cream Tequila Rose marbled with pink. Then topped with a buttercream infused with the tequila rose and topped with diced pieces of strawberry and then dusted with icing sugar.

If strawberries aren’t in season when you make this then just swap the fresh diced strawberries for some freeze dried ones

I hadn’t tried tequila rose before this only in a cocktail that I had made prior to this and I thought that the creamy strawberry flavoured alcohol would make a great cake.

For the cake:
• 225g unsalted butter, softened
• 225g caster sugar
• 4 eggs
• 3tbsp tequila rose
• 300g self-raising flour, sifted

• Pink food colouring

For the buttercream:

1. Preheat the oven to 180°C and line a nine-inch baking tray.
2. Beat the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy.
3. Gradually add the eggs to the mixture with a spoonful of flour.
4. Then beat in the tequila rose.
5. Fold in the flour and the baking powder.
6. Then place half the mixture in a separate bowl and add the pink food colouring to it.
7. Then add a spoonful of the white mixture followed by a spoonful of the pink batter and repeat this until its all in the tin.

      Hi, thanks for the comment as for where you can purchase the small bottles I’m not too sure as I recieved them as a gift. I do know that you can buy Tequila Rose in Sainsbury’s so maybe try there?
