So, we just had Jillian's first birthday party. It was fun. But if you want to know about it, you can see it on my personal blog HERE.
We're here to discuss crafty baking stuff.
So, the cake was SUPPOSE to be a 7 layered rainbow cake. Well, I stopped at 5 layers and then had to make the cake into 2 cakes (one became a three layer cake; the other became a two layered cake).
The cake was Vanilla Sponge; perfect for a little one to pick up and NOT made a huge mess.
The filling was crushed pineapple and whip cream.
And the icing... oh the icing... it was wonderful. It is literally called "the best icing I've ever had".
I will post recipes below.
|One of the cakes. I used Wilton color sugar since I have TONS in my cupboards.|
|The other cake. Jillian blew out the candle on this cake. It's a smaller cake, so I thought it would be perfect.|
|The birthday banner I made using my Silhouette SD. I am loving this machine!|
Okay, so for decorations I just made the banner and a matching birthday card. This banner will be used for Emily and I will make a special boys banner for Aiden. I used my Silhouette SD. This is the funnest machine.
Okay, recipe time!!
