I was asked to bake a 6 inch cake for the top of a cupcake tower. I decided to really jazz it up by making it a flower cake. The flowers are all hand made with butter cream. I added strawberry purée to the butter cream for added flavor. The cake is a strawberry cake. I cut 2 cupcakes in half and placed them on top of the cake to make the dome shape. The cupcakes are German Chocolate and key lime topped with matching hand made buttercream flowers.
This is a wonderfully delicious way to say welcome home to a soldier. Although it totally looks like a sheet cake, it’s actually made of strawberry cupcakes. Everything is edible. The dog tags are made of fondant which I spayed with silver edible color spray. The image is an edible image I designed and had printed at my local bakery. The letters are made of melted vanilla wafers and colored with edible spray and food color.
