Fresh Strawberries

My Grandmother’s 80th birthday was coming up and of course I wanted to give her the very best.  I made a chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream and fresh strawberries.  After learning from my Heart cake, I kept the strawberries on top rather than mixing them into the buttercream.

I decorated by first places chocolate covered strawberries around the cake.  Then I added a Happy Birthday.  The cake looked a little simple, so I added some vine work.

This has to be the hands down best cake I have made to this point.  It was so good and fresh!  Not to mention, my family had yet to see my attempt in cake decorating and they were quite impressed.
