Do you remember the Shire, Mr. Frodo? It'll be spring soon and the orchards will be in blossom, and the birds will be nesting in the hazel thicket. And the whistle in the summer barley in the Lower fields. And eating the first of the strawberries with cream. Do you remember the taste of strawberries?

Needless to say, we went a bit overboard with the strawberries on this cake:
The cake decorating job is still a bit crude, but I've given into the career aptitude test results (half of it, anyway) from senior year of high school and been getting as much practice in the art of cake decorating.
You can see with the strawberry cake with strawberries in the middle and on top, the only thing more redundant would be strawberry frosting.
Snapshots by yours truly.
