Ever since my nieces 3rd birthday I always baked her birthday cakes. This year she will be 9 years old, she was quick to tell me at the weekend this will be her last year of being a single digit it will be the double figures of 10 next year! I am still unsure what cake I will make this year, but thought it may be fun to share with you the previous birthday cakes I have made for my niece. As you will see cake decorating was quiet new to me 7 years ago.
|A simple cake decorated with water icing, butter cream |
and sugar balls
|A regular Victoria sponge cut and reassembled into a butterfly, decorated with sugar paste and jazz chocolate drops|
|Sponge cake baked in a 5 mould, decorated with sugar paste (very tricky) and |
my handmade sugar paste fairy
|A seaside themed sponge cake, decorated with moulded sugar paste and sugar. |
I had great fun making this one.
|A birthday on holiday so keeping it simple with a Sweetie Cake, also known |
as the 7 in Devon cake
|Birthday number 8 - Loom Bands! Decorated in sugar paste and |
mini fairy cakes with marshmallows
