Just a short but sweet post to show off a cute little cake I made for a dear friend. This 6 inch 2 layer cake is the purrrfect size for a small get together with friends to celebrate a birthday. For this one I used a white cake mix with 1/3 of the batter set aside and mixed with dry strawberry jello. Then I poured the strawberry flavored batter in the pan already filled with plain white batter. This gives it a bullseye of strawberry and a surprise when it is cut. The icing is cream cheese icing and all the pink piping and dots are also colored from a little bit of dry strawberry jello. The strawberry jello made it a beautiful pink color that has an orangish tone.
Creating a flat fondant topper like this is super easy. Just find the images online. Scale the internet window to the correct size and lightly trace the image on to paper. Then use the paper as a template to cut out the topper in fondant.
