So....

It's my friends birthday today and she's havin' a BBQ but last night me and another friend decided to try and make her a birthday cake - we both do bake but this one is something totally different.

I finished it about 10 mins ago (I'm posting while I wait to get picked up to take it away)...this is the final piece....



We where heavily inspired by this I am Baker blog entry http://iammommy.typepad.com/i_am_baker/2011/04/red-velvet-strawberry-shortcake.html.

From the top...



Without it's clothes on   Wink



Every second layer is red velvet and there's buttercream between each layer - and all over.

Then we covered it...look how lop-sided it is...



So we just waited until that was dry and put more frosting on it to even it out and I stuck a bow I had left over from a birthday present years ago.



Hopefully she'll enjoy it...any C&C's are welcome!

Thanks! Cheesy



P.S.

She loved the cake!!!

Here's an inside shot...
