My daughter Emma had a birthday recently. She requested a funky pretty birthday cake. Which is so her. She is quite girly but she also has a quirky side. I tried to capture that in her cake.
The outside is the funky part. I used white frosting and piped it on in circles. I used a big writing tip. It’s the one that looks like a circle. No points or star shapes. Just a circle. Then I filled in the holes with dots. I didn’t try to be too pretty or uniform or anything.
The inside is the pretty part.
Pink is of course her favorite color. Couldn’t call herself girly if it wasn’t. I used two Strawberry cake mixes for the inside. Strawberry is one of the cake mixes I don’t mind from a box. It actually was pretty moist. And I didn’t want to spend all day baking/decorating a cake. We had celebrating to do.
I love birthdays. It makes me so happy to take a day and focus completely on one of my children. The others like it too because they get to come along and we always do something fun. There is always such a great spirit in the air. And the birthday girl feels so special.
Do you have any special birthday traditions? What is your favorite birthday cake?
