Best *Strawberry Shortcake* Themed Cake

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Hello friends,

 

I am looking for inspiration for a Strawberry Shortcake themed cake for my daughters' 6th Birthday. She is really into it these days. I would like to make it grand and her big day is on the 28th!! 

 

Servings is not an issue as I have multiple dummies I can incorporate.. I have bought the characters already..

 

Which is the best one you have seen yet?

I was looking at doing one last year for my daughter's 5th and this was my fave:

I ended up doing Pinkaliscious, however.

Have fun and good luck!

This is pretty.. i like the fact that the strawberry on top is Cake and not RKT. I wasnt sure if I could carve the cake that way.. I usually use variations of WASC for my cakes. Any tips? I might just attempt to steal your idea..

I use that very recipe.  It holds up well in carving.  Chill the cakes, carve and the newest thing I've learned which really works the best for me.  Ganache, Ganache, Ganache, lol.... The cake I made this week, I crumb coated with bc then ganache right over.  Lots of tutorials say skip the bc but I like the taste with it so the little bit for the crumb coat made it perfect to me.

 

Use the doll mold,  cut off a little of the top to give it more stability, turn it upside down  and carve to look like a strawberry.  It's really quite easy.  I am a novice of carved cakes but love to do them.

 

I am sending you a pm of something you might like for your daughter party.

Awesome... I have the Wilton doll pan and I love ganache!!! My newly found love.. but I didn't knew you could crumbcoat with bc and ganache over it. That is something I would like to experiment..

I also wanted to experiment ganache and bc mixed togeher this time as mentioned in another thread instead of using fondant. Have you used fondant? I am planning on making strawberries and other decorations out of modelling chocolate. I bought the craftsy class..

Yes, but I use fondant more for embellishments.  As I said, I crumb coat with the bc only because I like the taste better.  But I know you can use ganache under fondant and it does not require a crumb coat.

 

Love to see those, post a pic when done.
