Chocolate, Strawberry & Lemon Birthday Cake with Fondant Icing & Flowers

For my 26th Birthday I did not want to bake the normal chocolate birthday cake I wanted to do something different and use fondant icing as well.

Lots of people don’t like fondant icing but it was worth a try. Everyone enjoyed it alot and I enjoyed decorating my birthday cake, it took lots of research and reading and more reading.
