The cake was 3 layers of vanilla with a strawberries and cream filling. The whole cake was enrobed in vanilla buttercream and covered in fondant.
Real strawberries were requested for the filling and this one turned out to be delicious. I whipped some cream, sweetened it a little bit and folded in a few cups of fresh, diced, mascerated strawberries.
This filling is very adaptable - you can substitute any mascerated berry for the strawberries and have a wonderful berries & cream filling. You could even do a combination. I am loving the strawberries and cream theme - it's very "Wimbledon," which happens to be going on right now and is my very favorite tennis tournament. Go Roger!
The baby shower cake was decorated very simply with polka dots and a big celebratory bow on top.
Next week, a submarine cake! Stay tuned...
