I made this cake for my niece's 5th birthday and she absolutely loved it. I do wish I would have had more than two of Tip:3 as you need to use this tip for each colour at least once and cleaning in between each colour became quite tedious.
But in the end it was worth it as she looked so 'Berry Sweet'. :)

This is an adorable cake. Almost as cute as the vintage Strawberry Shortcake.
