Lip Smacking Strawberry Sweetie Cake

A Strawberry Sweetie birthday cake. This great sweetie cake recipe came about as a result of a cake questionnaire. I had no idea what type of cake I would bake for my cousins birthday last week.

So, I'd posted a few questions to her to help narrow down the choices.
  • Cake - Chocolate, vanilla or strawberry 
  • Topping- Icing, butter cream, ganache 
  • Other - chocolate, peanut butter, butterscotch, fruit, glitter 
  • Your Top 3 favourite sweets or chocolates please 

Here is the response I received:-
  • Oh my! cake - don't mind what flavour! 
  • Topping preference is - butter cream please! 
  • Top favourite sweets - liquorice twists, strawberry laces, cola bottles, teeth and lips!

From these answers I decided to make a Lip Smacking Strawberry Cake using a vanilla sponge, with a pink strawberry flavour butter cream, decorated with strawberry laces and strawberry jelly lips.

I baked a vanilla sponge, made a large amount of strawberry flavoured butter cream. When I sandwiched the cake together I also added a layer of the strawberry laces, between the strawberry jam and strawberry butter cream.

I levelled the cake and covered with a generous amount of butter cream and smoothed. I had an enormous amount of the strawberry jelly lips, some of which I covered with glitter to add a little glamour to the cake! I carefully placed the strawberry jelly lips on the top of the cake, and finished off with the strawberry laces wrapped around the cake as opposed to using fabric ribbon.

This cake was such a simple idea but it looked fab-u-lous and tasted a-maz-ing! Help yourself to the slice below.

This is my entry into February's Calendar Cakes Challenge hosted by  Dolly Bakes and Laura Loves Cakes. This months theme is Love and I think this cake would make the perfect Valentine's Day treat.
