Occasionally someone asks me to make a decorated cake for some occasion. My hands aren't nearly what they used to be 20 years ago. Perhaps if I did more cakes I would regain the youthful strength.
I didn't have much time to get this together. I usually like to have plenty of notice so I can plan and really find out what the person is looking for.
This project started as strawberry cupcakes (that I still have to decorate) and then a sheet cake was added because the person is afraid 40 cupcakes won't be enough.
I am not a decorator that you will ever find on television but I can do a fair job with a cake that tastes much better than store bought. The cakes are white with a strawberry cake marble. They are getting frosted with white buttercream frosting and pink borders.
Round cakes are SO much easier to do borders on.
Here are some pictures of the last cakes I made. No, I do not use all edible things on my cakes. I also don't think fondant tastes very good and have never bothered learning to use it. Although I did use some in the groomscake pictured below.
