This Strawberry Shortcake Birthday Cake was for my daughter’s fourth birthday, and the first time I ever attempted a Topsy Turvy cake. It turned out pretty good. The cake is strawberry, then iced smooth with white butter cream. The pink ruffles are marshmallow fondant tinted pink. I made all the strawberries, blossoms and ladybugs out of candy clay.

The bottom tier I added green scrolls with green icing, then I added the strawberry blossoms and ladybugs. I also added a couple of strawberry shaped cake bites around the bottom of cake plate. The top tier I added candy clay strawberries around the cake and added the strawberry tops with the same green icing from the bottom. I also added some small green dots with the icing.

On top I added three strawberry shaped cake bites, some larger candy clay blossoms and a couple of lady bugs. The doll was just bought at Walmart. I also made cupcakes that matched. Very cute birthday, my daughter loved it.
