What was your inspiration?
My granddaughter wanted a Strawberry short cake for her birthday so I made a modified one using the character Strawberry Shortcake as the theme. Her mother carried it through with the decorations, plates, etc. The cookie Happy Birthday sign is a sugar cookie with royal icing.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Plan out everything ahead of time. When you finish the cake frost and put in freezer until it gets hard enough to easily carve.. Working as quickly, but accurately as possible carve the strawberry, ice, decorate and put back in the freezer. When it is frozen wrap in plastic wrap and put back in the freezer. When You are ready to work with the cake, let it stay wrapped until it is defrosted. Put on finishing touches and then serve.
