Strawberry Shortcake II

Oh, I seem to have missed out the Strawberry Shortcake cake! It's the second cake which I made for Elena, the first one being the tiara cake two posts before.

Anyway, this is the second Strawberry Shortcake cake I've done. The first one was for my niece Michelle, and it was the modern, grown-up version of Strawberry Shortcake. This one however, was the classic, sweet version of Strawberry Shortcake!

I think I like this one much more, cause I've improved on the gumpaste formula and also my technique a lot since then.

This Strawberry Shortcake cake was orange cake I think... with chocolate ganache, if I'm not mistaken. My blog is so back-logged and it's been too long from the time I made the cakes to the time that I write a post on it, that I can't remember the details! :)

Anyway, I like the lovely, sweet colours and I especially love the strawberries and the strawberry blossoms. I made the top layer of "drippy icing" a bit too big. By the time I realized it, it was already stuck fast, and I could no longer remove it to make adjustments. So the "drippy icing" extended down the side of the cake a little too much. Thus it unfortunately covered most of the colourful stripes.

Never the less, I think it turned out quite nice and Strawberry Shortcake is ever so cute, especially with her freckles and ringlets!
