Cake by Alison C., Murfreesboro, TN

This cake is the first stacked cake I’ve ever tried. The bottom was three layers of 9" rounds. The top was two layers of 6" rounds. I used both white cake and strawberry cake layers.

The icing is a cream cheese icing. I just used a Wilton #4 tip to do the wiggles on the sides. I then used the #21 tip to do the shell-scrolls around the bottom and top of the stacks. After making the scrolls I put canned strawberry pie filling on the top of the cake and on the top of the 9" layers. I purchased plastic ballerinas off a bakery store at eBay and placed them strategically around the cake.

Not pristine… but my daughter sure thought it was cool!
