ISO Professional-Looking Cake?

Well, I'd suggest my Firenza Chocolate Ecstacy Strawberry Shortcake with whipped cream,



but you have to have a the Firenza Chocolate Ecstacy cake mix and a tiara cake pan, both of which are few and far between.

You can also look at the Wilton web site for some examples and recipes.

ok somehow I felt compelled to buy the Firenza Chocolate Ecstacy cake mix from the site Caine gave us. In addition, I bought 1 tiara cake pan from ebay. I'm not much of a baker and would rather cook, but can't pass trying to make this up. "LOL".

I made the firenza chocolate cake Caine told us about. Haven't tried it yet though. Here is a picture. I ended up pulsing the strawberries and than just put one layer of slices on the top

The cake was a hit at my dads cookout. Everyone enjoyed it even if they were pretty full from the cookout ; )
