Strawberry Chocolate cake- Part2

Today we come to the end of this Mega Marathon ๐Ÿ™‚ It was really wonderful to be a part of this crazy gang of girls who love their food.

I made this another version of the most awesome cake ๐Ÿ™‚ I used puree and shards in the batter and a glaze on top. It was a marriage made in heaven.
