They wanted a pink ombre cake. I decided to do a Strawberry cake with strawberry filling, to make the whole thing pink. Besides it sounded pretty tasty.
The recipe starts with pureed strawberries.
I made two deeper 8" layers and then split them in half so it would be 4 layers. I put strawberry filling in between the layers.
My friend, Juanita, helped me make the little banner. She always has a lot of good ideas about how to do things. And I got the little baby figure at ABC Cake decorating. I thought she was pretty cute. This is only the second time, I have done this all over rose technique. I think it turned out really well.
I need to do some practice cakes with some other techniques so I can learn some new stuff. I just don't want to spoil somebody's special cake while I practice. I gave some cake trimmings to my niece and her husband. They said it tasted good. I couldn't taste because I was on my diet.
They also wanted 24 cupcakes. Iwanted them all to look like flowers. I had some pretty little pink nonparel's I used as decoration. It was two day's work total, but I like the finished product!
