Birthday cakes


So a while ago it was manic birthday season of Jess and William (oh and mine) but as tradition I baked both their cakes from scratch and attempted to decorate – also being smart thought would try a number cake for the first time for William – yeah crazy I know…

Anyway here was Jessica’s cake as she loves LOL:

(Next time will flatten the top of the last layer so it will balance)

And here is the process of Williams number cake and the final one-

He loves Andy and dinosaurs πŸ™‚ the icing kept falling apart plus stretching it around a number is difficult! Plus I wanted it green on top but didn’t have enough fondant and rushed the decorating as family was arriving 😦 but I feel I’m getting better at buttercrumb coating πŸ™‚

I also made a cake for my dad back in June With choc coconut cupcakes πŸ™‚

So the next cake will be for my mum next month… let the planning begin! πŸ™‚ Maybe I should just stick to plain…. or try another method like smooth buttercream- plus it’s the thought that counts.
