This was an impromptu cake for Taylor’s 7th birthday that we celebrated on December 16, 2006. She is my 2nd cousin, daughter of my 1st cousin, Dale, and his wife, Audre.

Design Taylor has always reminded me of Strawberry Shortcake with her red hair and cute freckles. So, I’ve always wanted to make her a Strawberry Shortcake cake. However, I didn’t think I was going to have time this year due to work related deadlines. But when I woke up the morning of the dinner party and realized that I had the time, I was instantly inspired to make this cake for her. I was lucky that Michael’s had just the right cake pan !!!

Cake Chocolate blackout cake.

Filling No filling as it is a simple sheet cake

Icing Basic decorator’s buttercream.

Decoration I used different star and round tips to create the various textures.
