Lil’ C’s birthday cake in review

November 25, 2008

in Cake Decorating, Cakes and Cookies, Cakes for kids

Every year I only bake and decorate one big cake and that is Lil’ C’s birthday cake. Her first birthday cake was the first cake I had ever frosted. I think I have come a long way since then but I still have a lot to learn. Hopefully someday I will find the time to take a proper class and learn the proper techniques because whatever I am doing now are all through trial and errors!! : P

1st birthday – Pooh cake:┬ásponge cake with buttercream

2nd birthday – Elmo cake: sponge cake with buttercream and marshmallow fondant

3rd birthday – Princess Doll Cake: Vanilla Chiffon Cake with white chocolate strawberry mousse, buttercream and sugar craft.

4th birthday – Her 4th birthday cake almost did not materialize because I had a major cake disaster. I may have also have been a little too ambitious with the cake. It involved two cakes, rice crispies, sugar cones, marshmallow fondant and sugar craft. Easy guess. eh? : ) Will post my disastrous cake as soon as I can.
