The Tops! Part 1

Stick a Strawberry on it!

Maybe you know this, but if not, let me tell you: I have enjoyed decorating a few zillion cakes. Oh yes I have. These days I have been making a lot of cake toppers. If I am crunched for time, or the recipe took longer than expected and I can't spend the afternoon carving a cake or using every pastry tip imaginable, I make a topper! Just a little scrap of paper on a long wooden skewer! Look how simple this strawberry is. Like that...so simple! You don't have to spend piles of time on a craft to say to the world "Hurray for this strawberry cake!"
