"Where's my cake, Bedelia? " - Creepshow

The cake doesn't look that great. The woman I made if for gave me 20 minutes to get it put together before she needed it. I didn't even time to do a border around either cake. She kept sending Sean to see how much longer. It really made me mad. I had spent a long time making all the decorations and wanted the whole cake to look cute. Grrrr....The icing job looks like crap to me but she loved it and that is all that matters. I do love my flamingos and curly things. The leis are the only inedible thing on the cake. Everyone at the party freaked out and thought it was the cutest cake ever. That made me feel good but I know it could have been better.

The cake was a simple with cake filled with fresh picked Shuksan strawberries and whipped cream.

***EDIT*** This is the whipped cream icing recipe! I forgot to put it in my post.

Combine whipping cream and sugar in mixing bowl. Whip to soft peak stage. Add piping gel and vanilla, then continue to whip stiff peaks. Do not overbeat.

YIELD: 1 1/2 to 2 cups.

I made some cupcakes for the same party. These are vegan white cake with a vanillia "butter" cream icing. They are like rainbow cupcakes except they are just red, white, and blue on the inside.

Wow. You did that in twenty minutes?!

Yes, and it was nuts!! I had to make the whipped cream, layer the cakes, fill each layer with sliced strawberries, then tier the cake. LOL I had already made the flamingos and leis last week.

That's incredible. I'm in awe.
