TO START SUMMER OFF RIGHT, I DECIDED TO MAKE SOME SWEET JUICY STRAWBERRIES... OUT OF CAKE! I SCULPTED RED VELVET CAKE INTO A STRAWBERRY SHAPE AND DIPPED IN RED CANDY COATING, FOLLOWED BY A DIP IN CHOCOLATE AND A VARIETY OF TOPPINGS AND CHOCOLATE DRIZZLES, WITH GREEN FONDANT LEAVES/STEM. THEY LOOKED SO REAL AND WERE SO YUMMY! HOPE YOU LIKE THEM!

These are such a fun idea, and they look so delicious! I don't think I'd have the patience to make something like this. About how long did it take you?

I sculpted them by hand. Start by making a cone shape, then flip them on their sides nd round out the edges.

It took a while the first time- a few hours, but depending on how much experience you have making cake bitesOyhana: I sculpted them by hand. Start by making a cone shape, then flip them on their sides nd round out the edges. it will vary how long it takes.

I must confess that when I saw the picture I went "Pffft! That's got nothing to do with the contest. She didn't make the strawberries look like anything else." and I clicked on it and realized they weren't strawberries. I was surprised because they look so real! Great job with that!
