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$!!!!!!   Shocked   It wasn't the most expensive one, but it was by no means the least expensive!!  In total our little town of 300 odd people managed to raise over 14,000$!!!!!!!!  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$      Wink

The more or less straight on shot Smiley


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 Smiley  turned out pretty darn good Smiley!


and one more for fun!


Thanks for having a look!

Amazing what you can do with a little effort.  Great job on the auction.  And the cake looks very delcious.  And the bow turned out really good.  I like the ribbon on top as well.  Nice going.
