Birthday Cake Time Again!

Sasha celebrated her birthday at the beginning of the month and I of course got to decorate her cake. In January Sasha drew me a picture of what she wanted her cake to look like. It was so fun to get back into the kitchen and make something again. I absolutely LOVE celebrating the girls’ birthdays especially now that they have strong opinions about their cakes. It is my job to make their dream cake a reality. She wanted a dolphin cake (one of her favorite animals) with the dolphin jumping out of the water with a rainbow over it.

Here is Sasha’s drawing

My attempt at turning her dream cake into reality.

Sasha really wanted to use Funfetti cake mix for her cake. I used my Swiss Buttercream recipe for the frosting, and AmeriColor Food Gel to dye the frosting.

I am excited to see what Penelope wants her cake to look like. We have until October and she is already talking about it!
