Week #18 – 1st Birthday CakeMay 12, 2012 11:09 pm
My coworker Luke asked if I would make a cake for his daughter, Laila’s 1st Birthday. I asked if she had any themes or anything and he sent me a picture of this adorable toy that she loves.
I thought it would make an amazing cake so I happily said yes.
I baked the cake using my standard butter cake recipe but added in some funfetti to make it fun and playful. I put purple vanilla buttercream on the inside for that girly touch. However…
I dropped the first cake I baked on the floor. Yeah that was a few hours wasted.
So the next day I rebaked the cake and carved it out in the cat shape. The next day I covered it in orange fondant and added in all the details.
Luke told me that his daughter really loved the eyes so I focused on getting those to really pop. I really love the way this cake came out.
I was going to add the microphone but they needed the cake a day earlier than expected so I didn’t have time. I was going to make it out of an ice cream cone and a ball of rice krispies. Next time…Tags: birthday, buttercake, buttercream, cat, fondant, funfetti, music, vanilla
