Birthday Cake!

bday-cakeTomorrow we are celebrating three birthdays in the family: my father-in-law, brother-in-law, and sister-in-law, so I decided to make them a decorated cake.  The cake is chocolate and there is strawberry between the two layers.  The icing is buttercream.  This is the first cake I have made since I took the cake decorating class in July and I think it turned out pretty good.  It may be a tad pink considering 2 of the people are guys, but the red coloring just didn’t look really red (more of a mutant fluorescent orange pink) so I went with pink instead to match the strawberry filling.
