Every year, the last 2 months are always a crazy time for me because I go into a baking frenzy. Mainly it’s for Lil’ C’s birthday cake and also birthday cakes for a couple of her closest friends. If you have been reading my blog for a while, you would know that my whole cake decoration hobby started with Lil’ C’s first birthday cake. Today I actually saw a video of the first cake that I made for her and it was hilarious!! I think I have come a long way since then.
Lil’ C usually has a pretty clear idea of what kind of cake she wants. In fact I think she’s already planned the themes up to her 10th birthday and she’s only 6! Anyway, this year turned out to be Strawberry Shortcake and voila, here’s her 6th year old birthday cake!
I have to say that I love how the cake turned out. This year we had a big joint birthday party for Lil’ C and her best friend, E. So I actually made one 3-tier Strawberry Shortcake Cake and one 2-tier Garden Fairy Cake. I will post E’s cake next. For this cake, only the bottom layer is an actual cake. It is a strawberry butter cake with strawberry buttercrean. The 2nd tier and the strawberry 3rd tier is made out of Fruity Pebbles and covered with marshmallow fondant. As usual, everything is edible except the dolls and the sticks for the lollipops. The rest of the decoration with either made from marshmallow fondant or sugar paste.
