Kate made this cake!
For her boyfriend's birthday. He requested strawberry cake with strawberry buttercream, walnut brownies and fresh strawberries. She baked a pan of brownies, cut them out with heart and star-shaped cookie cutters, then crumbled the leftovers into some buttercream and used that for the filling in the cake. She punched up the strawberry flavor in the cake and icing by adding a half package of strawberry jello to each. The brownie hearts and stars are marching around the sides of the cake and the sliced strawberries on top are doing their best imitation of the June Taylor Dancers. He loved it.
