Rated 5 out of 5 by Sassyzan from This is a delicious and beautiful cake. I added gum paste butterflies for more decoration. Put it together at the last minute though. If you refrigerate it overnight, all the fondant melts and the strawberries make the top of the cake wet. But it still tastes good. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by AmyinNC from This cake is so beautiful and makes a wonderful centerpiece as well. I've also used the checkerboard pans and then decorated the outside the same. I belong to a social group and they are always asking for this cake. They are amazed at the basket weaving on the side and think that it takes so long to do. I can stack and decorate this cake from beginning to end in about 15 min. and I don't work fast. When I make flowers I always make extra so I have them on hand for a cake like this. I have also used artificial flowers before and it was just as fantastic.
