Strawberry Nutella Buttercream Frosting-Your body is a wonderland

When John Mayer wrote the song “Your Body Is a Wonderland” I am sure he was not thinking about the baking.

Me, on the other hand just looking into this pink bowl was singing “Your body is a wonderland. I will make cakes, tortes, roulades of you.”

And as John is singing

” Your body is a wonderland

Your body is a wonder ( I’ll use my hands)”

I am thinking “I will use the mixer…”

Instructions:

Core the strawberries to remove the white center.

Place cleaned strawberries in a food processor and pulse until smooth.

Place strawberry puree in a small saucepan over a medium heat.

Bring mixture to a simmer, stirring often. Simmer for about 30 min or until the mixture is reduced to 1/3 of the original volume.

Your Body is a Wonderland
(John Mayer)
We got the afternoon
You got this room for two
One thing I’ve left to do
Discover me
Discovering you
One mile to every inch of
Your skin like porcelain
One pair of candy lips and
Your bubblegum tongue
And if you want love
We’ll make it
Swim in a deep sea
Of blankets
Take all your big plans
And break ’em
This is bound to be a while
Your body is a wonderland
Your body is a wonder (I’ll use my hands)
Your body Is a wonderland
Something ’bout the way your hair falls in your face
I love the shape you take when crawling towards the pillowcase
You tell me where to go and
Though I might leave to find it
I’ll never let your head hit the bed
Without my hand behind it
You want love?
We’ll make it
Swim in a deep sea
Of blankets
Take all your big plans
And break ’em
This is

Love and hugs
