Fudge & Strawberry Cake Tea

Fudge & Strawberry Cake Tea
I still have lots of strawberries blooming out back and I really wanted to try baking a chocolate cake with pink icing to highlight them.  

Fudge & Strawberry Cake Tea
This was a box mix that was a fudge truffle flavor.  It turned out pretty good.  The family ate it and said it tasted really good.  I will tell you how I made it tomorrow.  The mug is Old Country Roses by Royal Albert.  The cake plate is Fostoria.

I have decided if the icing isn't going on that well, then you just layer more fruit and edible flowers on the cake and it still looks presentable.  Can you tell I am not a perfectionist?  I really like things that are a little flawed, I think they are more interesting.
