Funky Pretty Birthday Cake

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.

I love the idea of a quirky but pretty birthday 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.

This birthday cake is cute and quirky.  Love it!

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.

love the white and pink birthday cake.  Looks yummy

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?

  1. That cake looked very pretty!! I bet she loved it!! I think the inside does look beautiful. I am a chocolate fan and red velvet is probably a tie for 1st place on cakes. I don’t mind the boxed cake as much– but I”m a pretty impatient baker so I need things that happen fast….. Cake is my weakness!!! YUM!
