Dim Sum Anyone? I mean, Dim Sum Cake!

Dim Sum is a traditional chinese dish or a meal that involves small plates or bamboo steamers with small portions of food and drinking lots of tea.   I often crave the dumplings and just the atmosphere of dim sum where the servers will roll around carts stacked with bamboo steamers and you try to get their attention to get the specialty item you are looking for.

Now, this isn't traditional Dim Sum.... it's a CAKE!  Banana Sour Cream cake with vanilla swiss meringue buttercream and the steamer is made out of sugarpaste.
These dumplings are actually strawberry cake bites - yum!  I just loving making cakes that are meant to be other foods.
