It's strawberry season in North Carolina and this was the perfect cake to celebrate the season last week. The Birthday Girl was having her party at a strawberry patch and requested a Strawberry Shortcake character cake made out of Strawberry Cake and Fresh Strawberry Buttercream! I love the updated Strawberry Shortcake character, and I just had to include Strawberry's cat, Custard! The rows of strawberry plants are growing out of Chocolate Buttercream and crushed chocolate cookie "dirt." I created the plants out of Vanilla Buttercream and Fondant flowers and strawberries. As Strawberry would say, "Something berry special is happening in the berry patch!"
