Happy 3rd Birthday, Riley.

I love birthday cakes that masquerade as wedding cakes... Tiers and fondant and buttercream swirls... I wanted to do something really special for a client of mine, Kelli. (She is one of the many people I have met through using Twitter & Social Media.) The occasion was her daughter's 3rd birthday, and she wanted something with a strawberry theme. So below is what came together:

Vanilla Bean Cake Layered with Strawberry Jam, Strawberry Buttercream & Iced in Fondant. Fondant strawberries.

Thanks for the opportunity. :) xo
An off topic PS: I was really impressed by Kelli's CA State Fair photos this year. For updates on her work, visit her blog here. Or follow her on twitter.
