I'm taking a quick break from any sewing projects to show you this adorable DIY for a garden cake!!! I love "Pinspiration" and these cute individual carrot patches made me head out to the store to make a full size cake garden!
Box of chocolate cake mix (eggs, water, oil)
Chocolate icing (I used whipped)
Vanilla Sugar Wafers
Cake top decorations (they had marshmallow carrots and flower icing decorations. I also added some flower lollipops.)
Step 1 - bake 2 8" square cakes. Trim the top off of the bottom layer.
Step 2 - add icing after cakes have cooled. I sliced some strawberries to go in the middle.
Step 3 - Place 2nd cake on top and cover with icing. Begin to place wafers around the cake like fence posts. Use frosting to adhere the wafer to the cake. I trimmed the wafers to a point at the top to resemble the top of a fence.
Step 4 - Cut wafers in half lengthwise to stick horizontally across the wafer fence. Again, use the frosting to make it stick!
Step 5 - decorate with your choice of toppings and enjoy!!!
I hope your family has a Happy Easter!!! HE IS RISEN!
