Sweet 2016, Part 12: Strawberry Layer Cake

All good things must come to an end. Can you believe it’s time for the last cake? This month the final dome is ready for either a strawberry layer cake or a black forest gateaux. Whichever you make, there’s only room for one on the wall-hanging, so choose your favorite. I’ll be making the black forest option for a cushion to sit on a nearby sofa and I’ll also be making another festive cushion to bring out at Christmas with my 'spare' plum pudding block. 

Remember, only make one for the wall hanging!

Here's how I made my strawberry layer cake
I went for a sponge / biscuit colouring, but it would also look stunning in chocolate hues
 As always, number all your pieces and work in stages 
I picked a lovely fabric for the strawberries, but if you can't find one that's right, you can always indicate in the inside colour tones with permanent pencils / pigments
Keep checking back to the pattern for size accuracy
 The other cake option is a black forest gateaux with  cherries on top, so pick whichever you love
 and this brings us to the end of our great cake adventure!

Now all you have to do is select your background fabric if you haven't already. Tomorrow I'll show you how mine looks..I'm rather undecided at the moment!
