First Birthday Cake

5 Comments »

I thought that this would be the perfect topic for my 1st official Yummy Mummy Blog post!

Welcome.

I hope that you will return often to enjoy the feast of delightful cakes, cupcakes and other moreish goodies that will be shared with you on this blog.

All the cakes and eats that I produce, are done so using only quality and fresh ingredients.  Home made butter, free-range eggs, hand-milked (is that a word) milk to mention a but a few.

The cake below is one I recently made for a little boy’s first birthday.  The ‘design brief’ was simple – the mom had sent out invites with stars on them, and as her little boy was ‘her star’ she wanted to use stars somehow.

This is what I came up with.  A No 1 cake, decorated with Vanilla Buttercream Frosting and Sugarpaste Stars.  Simple – but how gorgeous?

And Star Cupcakes to match – vanilla with Green, Blue & Yellow Vanilla Buttercream Frosting & sprinkled with little Sugar Paste Stars.

And just for fun – Star Shaped Sugar Cookies.  Frosted with Royal Icing and then simply sprinkled with Sugar Paste Stars again.

Aren’t they fun?  This ‘theme’ could so easy be substituted by flowers, butterflies, frogs, dinosours,cars – whatever!

Have cutter, make shapes!
