Josie changed her mind a few times about what cake she wanted for her birthday. We finally ended up making layers of both chocolate and yellow cake and covering them with strawberry frosting. I used my favorite Deep Dark Chocolate Cake recipe from Country Living Magazine for the center layer. The yellow cake was Barefoot Contessa’s Birthday Cake recipe. The frosting was from Sprinkles’ Strawberry Frosting recipe. We decorated with ballerinas and flowers that we got from Dash & Dollop’s Etsy shop. The kids dissected the parts of cake that they liked best, and Josie was a happy girl.
