Building sandcastles out of cake

Sandcastle cake

I loved making this cake for a little girl who was celebrating her 1st birthday.

The cake is made from strawberry sponge with vanilla frosting and decorated with handmade shells and bunting. A spray (or 2) of perl luster made the cake sparkle.

I am really pleased with this cake and especially the strawberry sponge. I did a test run to see how using real strawberries would work and I have to say it tasted great. The vivid pink of the cake batter did fade a bit during cooking, but all in all I was happy and most importantly so was the birthday girl!
