So. When I found out there was a desert auction to be held at the Concert For Cancer here in town, I knew I wanted to make something. I've been volunteering at a camp for kids with cancer for 7 years, This is a cause close to my heart. 3 weeks ago I found out a boy in town my sons age was diagnosed with cancer. This made the desire all the more strong. 4 years olds should not get cancer.... mind you no one should... But the funds raised are going to the family. Anyway. I made my delicious Chocolate covered strawberry cake. It fetched a whopping 450$!!!!!! It wasn't the most expensive one, but it was by no means the least expensive!! In total our little town of 300 odd people managed to raise over 14,000$!!!!!!!! And I was glad to be a part of it!
Well, now that you've read all that, I guess you want to see pictures of the cake that made 450$
The more or less straight on shot
This is what the inside looks like. Under that pile of strawberries is a generous layer of choclate ganache!
Close up of my very first attempt at a bow turned out pretty darn good !
and one more for fun!
Thanks for having a look!
