Cupcake Whimsy... a super fun theme cake for a little cupcake!

Vanilla pound cake with homemade strawberry filling. Can I just tell you how yummy that filling is?!?!?! My husband taste tested it for me and bypassed the grape jam on his peanut butter and jelly sandwich so he could have strawberry filling instead! And no, it does not taste anything like store bought jam, it's soooo much yummier!

This cake was a first for me. I used the party supplies as inspiration for the cakes design but wanted a whimsical theme so I carved the cakes to have a little more of a wonky-whimsy feel. (I know that's not a word, but it is descriptive of the look I was aiming to achieve.)

I really like how it turned out. It is fun, girly, and whimsical. Perfect for a First Birthday! Happy Birthday Little Cupcake!

Hi Connie,

I use a steamer on my cakes sometimes. It's great for a variety of things, including giving the cake a nice sheen.
