lazy cooks strawberry and white chocolate gateaux

Hello all.Its strawberry time.....when I thought of baking this cake I had two boxes of strawberries in the the time I got back from my walk..I had none! magically dissapeared into stomach's unknown I HAD to make this happens sometimes,when i just HAVE to make I decided the next best thing would be to use the strawberry crush....and then add white chocolate chips to the cake and finish it off with a white chocolate icing.....I was pretty pleased with the whole thing!
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking pdr
2/3 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
2 eggs
1/2 cup strawberry crush
100 gms melted butter
1/4 cup white chocolate chips
1.Sieve the flour with the salt,baking soda,baking pdr and toss the white chocolate chips in.
2.Beat the eggs,sugar,butter,essence and the strawberry crush...(i used my blender)....add this to the dry ingrds......and bake in a pre-heated oven for 35-40 mins(at 180 deg  C).bake till a skewer comes out clean.
3. Let the cake the meanwhile prepare the icing
4. I used the "best frosting in the world"...and added melted white chocolate to it.
2 1/2 tablespoons flour
1/2 cup milk
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
100 gms white chocolate
1/4 cup white chocolate chips
1.Heat the flour and milk together..till thick...let it cool then add the vanilla essence.
2.Side by side melt the white chocolate in a double boiler(fill a bowl with water...let it come to a boil..put another smaller bowl in this with the chocolate)
3.Beat the sugar and butter till nice and fluffy,add the cooled flour mixture..beat again..then add the melted white chocolate...........
4.To half the frosting add the white choc. chips.
5.Split the cake in half.....spread the white choc. chip frosting,put the other cake half back on and spread the rest of the frosting.
6.Sprinkle some coloured sugar on top.

mixing the white chocolate in
spread half the mix here

7.Really nice.......except that maybe it was too much of a good thing.......the next time i'm going to reduce the frosting to half!my kids really freaked out.......but my cavities were crying!So guys...try half out first.
