I made this cake for my daughter's Strawberry Shortcake themed first birthday party!
I might have sketched out about 15 different cake designs and looked up a gazillion cakes for inspiration! LOL!
I actually didn't know what I would do after the 15th sketch and I remembered what a wise (and hot- might I add :o)) woman once told me!
When I was planning my wedding, I was looking up cake ideas and none of them were 'it' for me. My sister told me "YOUR cake hasn't been made yet. That's why it isn't yours". She was right, I started to use the same attitude when I came up sketches and designs for others.
So for this, I ''free styled'' - and hoped for the best! (Only because my daughter is not a client and she's too young to say ''how dare you free style my cake" LOL)- I mean, what's the worst that could happen right?
I hope she sees this cake when she's older and says "good job free styling mom!"
Flavors included green and pink French vanilla (with a polka dot interior- I will post how I got this at a later date) and red velvet!
