Easy Birthday Cakes (for girls)

2 Comments »

I thought I’d post a few pics just to show you all how easy it can be do bake and decorate your own children’s birthday cakes. I’ve taken pics from the last 3 years worth of cakes – they are not perfect, but you can get the general idea:

First Birthday Cake:

So simple – a No 1 – could it be easier? This was a carrot cake, iced in cream cheese frosting and decorated with marshmallow flowers. Relatively easy and oh so pretty?

Butterfly Cake:

This is a chocolate sponge cake which I traced a template of a butterfly onto, and then cut it out. You can decorate it any way you wish, in a myriad of colour and with so many different sweets. Simple buttercream icing is used. A cake like this is quite big tho, so it would be ideal to send to school, or for a BIG party!

Flower Cake:

This cake my 3yr old decided she wanted. And it was so easy! I cut out a template on paper, laid it over a tray cake and voila! You could go to town and ice each petal and the middle differently, but I took the easy route. And she loved it! I think this is a chocolate cake – but you could use any flavour you wished.

  1. I always have the best intentions for my childrens birthday cakes, but somehow what I envision in my head, and what comes out isn’t always the same thing. Oh well, at least there are professionals like you that I can rely on!

    Ness you’re not the only one! I suppose it’s the same as me imagining a gorgeous website – but not having a hope in hell of accomplishing it myself – thank heavens for professionals like you!
