The top tier was a vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream, and the bottom tier was a strawberry shortcake with real fresh strawberries - I'm always hesitant to use whipped cream in cakes that aren't going to be consumed immediately, so I instead used strawberry buttercream to make sure the filling was delightful and fresh, and to differentiate it from the other tier.
I was also asked to bring a cake to a family birthday party. The birthday boy goes to school for business (specifically related to fashion merchandising) and wanted something related to jeans. I only had time to make a round cake, but I dressed it up as denim-y as possible.
Until next time!
