Coolest Strawberry Shortcake Birthday Cake

I made this Strawberry Shortcake cake for my granddaughter’s 4th birthday party. I hired a Wilton’s Strawberry Shortcake (new design) cake tin, bought a packet of cake mix, icing sugar and white margarine. Then I just followed the different instructions.

I used butter icing in different colors using gel food coloring and I iced the cake with different star tips. I didn’t like the bright red color for the hair and eyes and used Burgundy food coloring for the hair and made the eyes green. I also used the same color icing for outlining the different parts. I used a little bit of Orange food coloring for the face and arms.

I first used different icings from a tube for the smaller parts but the colors became darker after a while. The green stripes on the shirt and band nearly looked black and the white stripes looked grey; even the red strawberry and lips became a blackish red. At the end I scratched all the tube icing off and colored my own butter icing and piped it on the cake. There was a huge difference and the cake looked much better!

I used powder food coloring for the black and red icing. At last I put the birthday candles in jelly strawberry lollies and also put a few more around the candles at the bottom of the cake. My granddaughter was very proud of her birthday cake and she thought it was beautiful.

  1. You used the Wilton’s cake tin new design for Strawberry Shortcake, but is allready outdated. For the newest design you have to work from pictures.
