Cake is Great!


This past weekend, I got to go crazy with girly-ness for Kayla's birthday.  The colors were inspired by the "Hannah Montana" theme.  I had a lot of fun with the design- very festive!  I love the frilly boarder. As requested by the birthday girl, I created a pink and white "striped" cake- with layers of vanilla cake with strawberry cream cheese filling.  

Strawberry Cream Cheese Filling:
4 oz cream cheese
8 tablespoons butter, softened
2-3 tablespoons strawberry puree
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
about 2 cups powdered sugar

Beat cream cheese and butter until smooth.  Combine with remaining ingredients until thick, yet fluffy.

What a cute cake! I love how you wrote her name across the stars. You never fail to inspire me with your cakes. In my Wilton class, they taught us how to make the same bottom border that you have. I attempted it but never practiced it so i didn't get it down. That recipe sounds like the bomb! I just love your blog!
