Thursday was my eldest daughter Annie's birthday. She has always wanted to help me in decorating cakes, but I never allowed her to. So, I promised that she could decorated her own birthday cake when the time came.
I made a simple, plain, two-tiered cake. It was chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream filling. The top tier I covered in pale green fondant and the bottom tier was light pink. Then, I made a border of white gumpaste daisies.
Annie decided to add a few gumpaste butterflies which I had made earlier. Then she piped her name and some patterns using a tube of blue sparkling gel icing.
I do believe she enjoys cake decorating as much as her Mummy! :)
I absolutely love food and I adore all things beautiful! So what else could possibly surpass gorgeously decorated cakes, cookies, pastries and such? They're beautiful, and even better, they're edible! Therefore, I have decided to teach myself baking and cake decorating and I shall document my attempts on this, my humble blog. Wish me luck!
