Is Your Cake Decoration Running? Then Better Go Catch It!

Nah, the old fridge joke doesn't apply. Tell me the truth? How many times did you try that on your friends? Anyway, Marguerite and I did some baking again yesterday. Still a strawberry cake (basically the Tennessee Strawberry Jam Cake I made before with some adjustments since I didn't use strawberry jam, but a can of pie filling instead) and still a birthday thing. I followed this recipe for the recommended frosting, but it was so runny. Seriously, I decorated the thing with the fondant strawberries and lettering (Marguerite loves the fondant part; she basically treats it as playdough, which it kind of is...) then I rushed to the bedroom to get the camera and by the time I got back to the kitchen, they had inched away from their original places, hence the appearance of falling off the edge (that was not intentional). I didn't add candles anymore. It has been a week after all, lol. Yes, I often overdo things, if you're wondering. :D

Splendid job on frosting the cupcakes on the previous post :)

This runny cake still looks good considering the strawberries moved! :)

@Sharkbytes: I guess technically they were being buoyed away? lol

@Dave: Thanks. It wasn't half bad. :)

@Vera: Thanks. I suppose I took the picture just in time, before the strawberries disappeared from the surface of the cake, lol

@Caloy: Thanks :)

Pretty cake! I have to applaud your bravery in baking from scratch! For Hero's 1st birthday I ordered a plain butter cake with boiled (marshmallow) icing and decorated it with fondant. It looks delicious, congrats!

Thanks, Nikka. I would have been terribly insecure if it had been for a party, but since I was just sicking it on family, I was pretty brave. Do you have pictures of Hero's cake? I know how artistic you are. I'd love to see it.:)
