This cake had gumpaste strawberries on the outside and sliced strawberries on the inside. I made the strawberries in an eight step process...Make the berries on wires, make the leaves on wires, make the flower centers, put the flowers on the wired centers, dust the leaves and berries, steam the leaves and berries, apply the caps on the berries, and wire them all together. Oy.
This cake went to a wedding that had a barn reception, so the rustic icing and berries fit into the surroundings perfectly.
