Caking - Farewell Vera!

Today we had a Farewell party for an elderly widow in our church. She has lived here for many years and is moving this next week to Idaho to be closer to her family.
I made a cake for her party!

Made a butter pound/sponge cake with strawberry filling and cream cheese frosting.
Turned out really good since I made it a day ahead of time and it had time to sit and the strawberries to ooze into the cake and give it good flavor, texture, and moisture.

I then covered and decorated it with marshmallow fondant. If you want to use fondant I highly suggest making your own with marshmallows and sugar as the store bought stuff is very hard, tough, and does not taste good at all. The recipe in the link came from Cake Central . com. There are lots of different recipes on there for fondant. It's very easy to make and to work with.

I gave up on making the "red" a true red color as it was alot of work. So I settled for this pinkish coral color.

Vera has played piano for our church on occasion. She also faithfully plays for the churh's service at the local hospital for the elderly and shut-in people.
We are sad to see her go, but happy she has found a new home near her family.
