Saleeya’s 5th birthday was coming up. Despite her young age, Saleeya has a definite sense of style, and knew what she wanted for her birthday. Her mom contacted me to make a cake that was loosely based on the children’s toy Strawberry Shortcake. She sent me some images to use as inspiration.
This very cute cake consisted of an 8″ tier and a 6″ tier. The cake was vanilla yellow cake with strawberry buttercream filling and vanilla buttercream frosting on the outside of the cake. I also made a dozen cupcakes (vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream) to go with it. The strawberries and flowers on the cake are all made by hand from fondant.
On the right above is a sketch I had done and sent to Saleeya’s mom so she could see what I was I proposed to make for Saleeya. I was trying a out new drawing app (I usually sketch out cakes in pencil). I think it came out okay in the app, but I think I’m sticking to pencil next time.
Below is the finished cake, and the adorable birthday girl herself, all decked out in Strawberry fashion. I love that skirt!! Her matching pink, red and green dessert table is behind her with her cake is right in the center. I think those pink, red and green candies look so pretty. It looks like it was a great party!!
