This is Elisabet's birthday cake. She wanted a cake similar to one I had made before but with purple instead of pink like the the other cake was. The top is white almond sour cream cake and the bottom is the strawberry version of that. Soooo yummy! Filled and iced in buttercream and covered in Satin Ice fondant. The topper is made of gumpaste.

Both tiers are chocolate cake with raspberry buttercream filling. Iced in buttercream and covered in Satin Ice fondant. This was the first time I made raspberry filling. I kept asking around at work for a good recipe and nobody had one so I used one that I found online. I should have asked my friend Jenn because she had 2 great recipes! The one that I made tasted pretty good but I'm going to try one of her recipes next time! I had so many problems with this cake and I had to make the top tier 3 different times. I wanted to cry! I'm not liking that Satin Ice fondant very much...it keeps tearing on me. I think I'm going to try a different brand. Oh and the color was supposed to be hot pink and the actual color looks more like a redish-pink. I used Duff's hot pink fondant and it's already VERY pink and when I put it on the cake it wasn't the color I wanted it to be. I thought it was so nice to have pre-colored fondant but next time I'll be mixing the color myself again!
My baby sister went to Europe for the summer and she brought me back a cute little reversible heart shaped silicone cake pan. =) So I made these little cakes for my family just for fun. Two of them are white cake and the other two are strawberry cake. Iced with almond buttercream and covered in Satin Ice fondant.
