They want a confetti cake with strawberry buttercream but since it’s for their 5 year old son...is there anyway I can make the cake NOT pink? Lol
I could ask her if the cake being pink would be a problem but I thought I’d also get opinions here. Is it weird if I Crumb coat it with the strawberry bc and then go over with a smooth coat of vanilla bc?
I also kind of wanted to do like rainbow sprinkles on the outside with possibly rainbow swirls on top (Since the cake is confetti) which I think would look weird on a pink cake right?
Appreciate the responses!
Hummmmm....... I’m thinking to just use strawberry extract? If you can find any.
Just did a quick google search & it says its available at target, Michael’s crafts & Walmart
I use strawberry extract all the time to boost the flavor of strawberry cakes and frosting. However, she ordered a cake with strawberry frosting, so surely she knows it will be pink, since strawberries are red. Even if you use real strawberries, it will not be an intense red. I think it would look fine to do the rainbow sprinkles and swirls.
You could always add red dye to your strawberry icing and make it red instead of pink also...
But I don't think it would look odd to have pink strawberry icing under a thin layer of white vanilla...
