Basket O' Strawberries

One of my colleagues (M) is getting married on Saturday so we decided to throw a little surprise party for her at the last minute.

I was asked to make a cake for the party at the last minutes so I knew it had to be quick and easy. M likes chocolate so I used Dorie Greenspan's infamous Devil's Food Cake smothered in a chocolate buttercream. The outside is decorated with Pirouette cookies.

M is getting married in the Grand Tetons National Park so I thought the rustic decorations were perfect! Congratulations M!!!

That is my ALL TIME FAVORITE cake! I love the Broken Cookies around the sides and the Strawberrys -- the ribbon is so cute! This is even something I could maybe do because it looks fancier then it is. I'm just not sure about getting the cake even and the icing... I forget how hard it is to frost a layered cake like that and to make the cake look even - not lopsided. You are amazing! What a cute idea. I'm still waiting for you to tell me that you want a business partner, because I'M ALL IN BABY!!! :)
