Garfield would have a field day with this cake! As requested by the client...her brother's fave flavor is Super-Strawberry with strawberry preserve so that's what we used for the inside. The outside needed to look just like a big serving of hot, fresh lasagna, so we ribboned some ivory butterceam and layered it with red buttercream "sauce", shaved white chocolate "grated cheese" and "hamburger crumbles" made from chocolate buttercream containing mini chocolate chips. ~Mangia!~ http://www.cakes5thavenue.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=95310933 95310933 Engagement Ring Box Cake #1 Fragrant vanilla cake is enrobed in red fondant to create this lovely jewelry box cake. Accented by white fondant ribbon and bow on box top, delicate white gum paste roses, an ivory fondant "cushion" with quilted pattern, and of course a big solitaire crystal in a silver ring setting. Perfect for either an engagement party or bridal shower!
