I love strawberries in lots of ways as far as eating but my favorite is dessert. I’m hoping to share a recipe with you later this month for a strawberry cake but today we are going to look at beautiful cakes that not only have strawberries in them but also on them. Strawberries are a great decorative tool when it comes to food and especially desserts, the bright red color of berries plays against white buttercream icing, brown chocolate icing or bright pink strawberry icing. Of course, you can also dip strawberries in chocolate and use them on a cake as well, strawberries can be as complicated or as simple as you want. Here’s a look at some gorgeous cakes which are inspired by our berry of the month as well as using strawberries for decoration, Enjoy!!! (above image via)

I love a good basketweave on a cake and when you can make a three tiered cake look like baskets full of berries and flowers that’s even better. (via)

Not only is this cake awesome, which I’m assuming is a huge strawberry shortcake, but the use of a wood stump as a cake stand is genius. (via)

I love chocolate and strawberry together and using the strawberries here as decoration is beautiful and tasty. (via)

Pound cake is one of my favorites with strawberries, so this rustic looking cake would be great. Layers of pound cake with whipped cream or cream cheese frosting between the layer and decorated with strawberries. Maybe have some strawberry sauce on the side, YUM!!! (via)

This is so pretty and fun, from the strawberries, leaves and flowers to the red ricrac around the top of each layer, perfect for a summer birthday, shower, or just because. (via)

I also love traditional foods served in a non-traditional way, here we have a Strawberry Shortcake shooters if you will. Small glasses with cake in the bottom strawberries in the middle and topped off with whipped cream and a sliced berry. Great party food. (via)

All words are my own.
