While I’m on a cake decorating kick here on the blog, I thought I’d finally get around to sharing V’s fourth birthday cake.
Remember my final cake for the Wilton Level 2 course? Well, I basically copied it for V’s fourth birthday cake design. When I asked her what she wanted, she started by basically requesting a repeat of her third birthday cake… Even though I was (and still am) proud of that cake, I’ve definitely stepped up my cake decorating game (like that cake inspired me to do!), so I talked to V and explained to her that she could have something different if she wanted. She thought about it a bit, and then decisively declared that she wanted daisies. I didn’t know that daisies were her favorite flower, but apparently they are! I didn’t even know that she knew specifically what daisies were, but when I asked her what they should look like, she confidently described them as having lots of white petals with yellow in the middle. Okay! Perfect.
I figured out how to make daisies and prepared a bunch of them ahead of time. We celebrated V’s birthday at my parents’ house, so I baked and frosted the cake there. I piped the lettering first…
…and then I placed the daisies and leaves.
And here is the cake!
