You will have to excuse my photography skills, or lack thereof and some of the backgrounds.
As you may have guessed by now I really enjoy baking and decorating cakes! This was cake #2 for Bianca's 3rd Birthday. We had a small morning tea with my Mum and Brother on the morning of her Birthday, her party was the day after, and I decided a Handbag would be good!
I saw a design in a magazine and changed it to suit the materials I had on hand, because I had not planned on having a cake on her actual Birthday morning.
This cake was so much fun to make! I would love to do it again but with a different look.
My Daughter recently turned 3 and wanted a Pink Cake and kept coming back to a Ballet cake in one of my books. We made a few alterations and ended up with these divine slippers! One is plain Butter Cake and one is Chocolate. I iced this with Pink, strawberry flavoured icing. It was a big hit with her!
My little girl turned 1 and naturally required 3 cakes. *blush*
First we had a Simple Butterfly to celebrate with her Godparents
A Tiara for our little family of 4 on her actual Birthday.
and a Dolly Varden that endured more than any cake should. She was made on a Friday, and had to be transported all the way to Northern NSW for us to have morning tea with the family on Sunday.
I know people say they never remember their 1st Birthday so why make such a fuss but we do! Parents will always remember the 1st birthday, photos are taken so the kids can look back on them. Mine love looking through their photo albums and remembering their cakes.
This was my first "make it up as I go along" cake, and I was 6 months pregnant. I remember the morning of the party my husband had to resuce me in the kitchen because I was having a flip out about making his "lucky fin" just right.
He's always such a great help, he helps me solve problems as they crop up, he's full of good ideas when I am all out. And very supportive of all the baking. Love him to bits!
