Strawberry Shortcake Birthday Party

My baby turned 3 on Monday. Where does the time go?!?! We finally decided that we would have a Strawberry Shortcake Birthday Party; or as she says.."Strawberrwe Orkcake". I posted earlier about how I came to start making birthday cakes. You can read that post here if you would like!

Anyway...Strawberry Shortcake...
I always look around on-line to find some inspiration. I had several cakes that I found and loved! This cake was a combination of a few of them. It turned out so cute, I really hated to cut and serve it!

In the end...the cake was eaten, presents were opened, memories were made and fun was had by all! Now all that is left is one tired and exhausted mama! What a fun and memorable 3rd Birthday! :)


  1. You did a GREAT job!

    I always like strawberry Shortcake! I had the doll that if you scratched her dress, it smelled like Strawberries.:) Oh the good 'Ol days! I am glad to see she is making a Come Back.

  2. This cake is sooooo cute! I remember I had a strawberry shortcake cake as a kid and this brings back some memories!
    Thank you for sharing...

  3. Love the cake. You are so talented!

  4. Alicia, thank you so much for stopping by my blog & leaving a comment. I was beyond giddy with excitement =)

    That cake is aMAYzing! My baby is turning 2 one week from today. I tear u every time I stop and let myself think about it.

  5. Oh my goodness...AMAZING job on the cake! I would have loved that as a kid; I was totally into Strawberry Shortcake! I'm so impressed!


  6. Um, that cake is amazing! I bet that she's still talking about that cake!

  7. Oh man. I better not show this to my daughter. In fact, I better stop looking myself. You are tempting me to switch from a ballerina party to a Strawberry Shortcake party for my oldest's birthday. AMAZING job!!! Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  8. What a great cake! :) You did an awesome job. I like to make my kid's birthday cakes too, but BOY is it a lot of work.

    I found you today on the "You Like Me" Blog Hop and am your newest follower. You can see the cake I just made for my son's birthday last weekend on my blog at

  9. I came across your blog through Pinterest, and wow, you make some awesome cakes! I am just getting started dabbling in cake making and I was wondering if you could answer just a couple of questions. First, on a cake like this Strawberry Shortcake one, is that buttercream and fondant? Because I tried using buttercream and fondant together and the fondant just kept sliding down on the was droopy and pitiful. So any pointers you could give would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
