I had made a similar cake earlier this year. I like cakes that jump out at you. My student, Louise, asked me to make this cake for her daughter, Ania-Rose's Christening. I think she was expecting a typical round cake with a buttercream cross because her eyes lit wide open at the site of this beauty.
She asked for strawberry cake and I made a delightful cream cheese frosting to compliment.
Anywho, I am partial to baby girls; having 2 lovelies of my own. God Bless you sweetheart. may you enjoy the pleasure of cake for many, many, many more years :)
