HI Everyone -
This past weekend I prepared my good friend’s baby shower cake.  Her theme was “lady bug” so she had black and red linens for the tables and balloons.
I prepared a chocolate cake (not rose’s) with TCB strawberry neoclassic buttercream.  I added alot more strawberry then the recipe called for - i wanted to make sure the strawberry flavor was not overpowered by the the chocolate cake.
The baby carriage was made out of rice crispy treats covered with fondant.
This is my first two - tier cake.  I still have alot to learn about tiered cakes - so i keep practicing…
Thanks for looking!

That certainly is one cute cake! Congratulations!  I love this rice krispie treat sculpting.  I think there should be a gallery showing of these things somewhere.  “Do not eat the art objects.”

That’s a beautiful cake there, littlelottie! I love the ladybug on top. One of these days I’ll take a chance at a tiered cake, but for now it’s a challenge I haven’t faced. Nicely done!
