Great Big Birthday Cake!May 7, 2009 at 4:33 pm | Posted in cakes & tortes, layer cakes, sweet things | 16 Comments
I spent most of this rainy afternoon decorating a birthday cake for a friend’s little guy. A fun project, but glad it’s behind me. Doing something like this just seems so much harder at home than at the bakery…not enough space, not enough bowls and, most importantly, no one to wash the dishes for me!
It’s a simple vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream, but I’ll post recipes when I assemble a small cake I plan to make with the leftovers. The tiger face was made with white chocolate, and was by far the part that made me most anxious!
