One of our big bubba's friends wanted to surprise his grandmother with a strawberry shortcake for her birthday so he came by and got a hands on lesson in cake baking and decorating. He pre-heated the over, prepped the pans, made the batter, baked the cakes and then sliced all of the strawberries. The next day he helped make the icing, whipped the cream, staked the cake and decorated it with buttercream and fondant cutouts. Grandmother is a Patriots fan so we topped it off with a Happy Birthday banner with a little football flare. I love to share the love of cake decorating, so I am always up for a hands on lesson. Congratulations to A on his first successful cake at the ripe age of 9.
