Remember the Vintage Lace Wedding Cake? Well, this is the groom’s cake that went to that wedding!
The groom is an avid hunter and he wanted a simple cake to reflect his love of hunting!
The bride sent me the toppers (aren’t they hilarious?) and asked that I put them on a strawberry sheet cake with chocolate buttercream. The cake was between 3 and 4 inches tall – it was two 9″x13″ layers with a generous filling!
So, they wanted to keep the cake simple… with only the toppers on it, and then decorate the table to reflect his interests… I think it was a fabulous idea and turned out great!
Anyway…. if you’ve been reading here anytime at all, you know that most of my cake recipes (especially for decorated cakes) are cake mix based (yep… and proud of it!). The strawberry cake for this order was no different… here’s the recipe I use for Strawberry cakes!
Do you have any questions about this cake? Please leave them in the comments and I’ll do my best to answer and help out!
- Thoroughly mix all ingredients together.
- Bake at 325° for about 30-35 minutes (longer, depending on pan size), until the cake springs back when touched. Cool in the pan for 5-10 minutes, then turn out on a cooling rack and cool completely before frosting.
