This was a great cake.  Kaighty’s little friend Lili from school turned 5 in May.  Her mother had always made her birthday cakes up until now.  After Kaight’ys 5th birthday party, which Lili attended, she decided that her mother made tasty cakes, “they just weren’t as pretty as Kaighty’s cake”.   Luckily her Mom is not nearly as sensitive as I am, because that would have broke my heart.   Lili’s mother order a Strawberry Cake with Cream-cheese Icing, and dogs.  That was my only guide, dogs.  Lili loves all dogs.  I decided a plaque was n order.

I have been sewing with Heather Ross fabric lately.  I know what your thinking.  What does that have to do with baking?  A lot.  She has this really cute fabric line called lightning bugs and other mysteries.   There is this supper cute print with dogs randomly placed all over pale blue fabric.  This was my inspiration for Lili’s cake.  Lili turned 5, Lili got 5 dogs.

The strawberry cake was totally organic, and light (not fat free).  I used a gallon of freshly picked strawberries from our local u-pick farm, Southern Grace Farms.  The girls and I  love to pick fresh berries.  The cake is made with vegetable oil instead of butter, and was very moist and delicious.  The filling was a very rich, almost pure cream cheese (no powdered sugar here).  Topped with a  light cream cheese buttercream.

I baked these delicious cup cakes for Kaightlyn’s school birthday party.  Her fellow pre-K students and teachers loved the moist chocolate chiffon and strawberry cakes topped with my light swiss buttercream icing!  Oh to turn 5 again, and have the world at your finger tips!  Happy Birthday Lover!
