Strawberries for Saleeya

| Cakes for Girls, Kids' cakes

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!!

Happy 5th Birthday Saleeya!!!
