My good friend Jackie's baby Grace just turned 1 on the 30th. She lives about 2 hours away and I am unable to make it to her birthday party so I decided to send her a cake and some outfits as a surpise. This is my first time mailing a cake so I made sure to make all the decorations on the cake flat so they dont get damamged.
The cake is a Strawberry Sourcream Cake with vanilla buttercream. I used Satin Ice fondant for all the decorations. I got the inspiration for this cake from A Taste of Whimsy's Flickr site. She has such a great style!
I used a edible marker to make the stiching on the flowers and luster dust all over the cake for the shimmer.
