Dawgluver,

Wow ... It is truly a gorgeous looking topping ... the cake is sponge and simple yellow ...

Thanks and Happy July 4th to you and DH ... and of course, the lovely canine mascot.

Ciao.
Margi.

This isn't actually a cake, it is Jello with strawberries and covered with whipping cream and strawberries. I have done the same design on cake but don't have a picture.

Wonderful, LP! Happy Canada Day!

Margi, I must tell you that since I'm not a baker, my cake was lopsided. It was also a layered sponge cake. It did look great when viewed from above...

Dawgluver,

I find it quite exhausting to not be able to just publish our photos in same way as our albums ... directly ... We seem to have to go through a daunting process.

My viewpoint of course ...

I am sure, that your cake was delicious anyway !

Kindest.
Margi.
