I was SO excited to cater my sister-in-law's recent baby shower. I was thrilled to have another chance to make a tiered cake. She's having a little girl, so there was no question what kind of cake it would be...a pretty-in-pink strawberry cake! I used my very favorite cake recipe - Paula Deen's "Simply Delicious Strawberry Cake." This recipe is SO amazing....it's super easy and always comes out moist and perfect. The real strawberries and cream cheese frosting really make this a stellar cake!
I was also excited to use fondant again...this was only my second time using it. I still haven't perfected the technique, but I was still very happy with the finished cake. It got a lot of "Ooohs" and "Ahhhs" when I took it out of the box! :)
You may remember my very first tiered cake, which was THIS WEDDING CAKE.
I had a lot of fun decorating this one...especially since I used a combination of stripes and circles. I wanted it to be cute and classy! The sheer pink ribbon tied it all together beautifully and the baby blocks on the top tier were the perfect finishing touch.
I also made punch and Cheesecake Pops for the shower. Below, I've included a picture of the cheesecake pops...they are always just as cute as a button! This is the second baby shower I've made these pops for. I also made them for baby Sebastian HERE. They are perfect for this type of event, because you can customize them with any color chocolate or ribbon....plus, they always disappear fast! You can see my original Cheesecake Pops post HERE, which includes a link to the recipe...they are really fun to make!!!
