Tonight I finished decorating my cake and I am really excited to show you how it turned out plus share the recipe.
Slice your fresh strawberries tops off then into thin slices and arrange by size.
Level your cakes then cut in half to make impressive layers. Note for smarter people out there, dont double the recipe and pour it into two cake pans then over cook your cakes because you are scared when you see that they are twice the size you expected... not that I did that or anything.
Stiff peeks, also most amazing frosting every. Think of all the possibilities! Add maple syrup to it for stuffed french toast with bacon, or chocolate bacon cupcakes, nom. Add nutmeg and cinnamon to go with a pumpkin cake, okay, I am salivating.
Here I am brushing sugar, vanilla water onto my cake because I saw it on a tv show. Not because I overcooked my cake and was afraid of it being too dry!
