Strawberry Marshmallow Cake

Strawberry Marshmallow Cake – Zefir Cake

Calling all strawberry lovers – I have just the strawberry cake recipe for you! My Strawberry Marshmallow Cake, aka Russian zefir cake, is the ultimate strawberry dessert! This decadent and stunning cake is made with classic sponge cake layers, melt-in-your-mouth strawberry marshmallow layers, fresh strawberries and of course strawberry buttercream! I garnished the cake with more marshmallow and chocolate ganache. Every bite of this strawberry cake is bursting with berry flavor!

Russian Zefir
If you’ve never tried zefir or Russian marshmallow, you are in for a real treat! This meringue marshmallow is like a little bite of heaven – so fluffy, soft and just melts in your mouth. This marshmallow recipe is different from its American cousin because it’s made with agar gelatin. This type of gelatin will set at room temperature, no refrigeration required, at it sets much quicker and firmer than regular gelatin. I have the one I use from Amazon linked below! When making zefir, make sure to follow the sets carefully for best results. The cooking times and measurements need to be accurate for the marshmallow to turn out well.
For my strawberry cake, I went with strawberry flavored zefir but it can be made in a large variety of flavors. My other favorites are peach and raspberry. Check out my other zefir cake below!
