The time has come to make one of the most special and difficult cakes for me during the year .. the birthday cake of one of my daughters, Andrea … my sweet Andrea. Amazing how time flies, 9 years already.. so the mandatory question to be asked here is of course:
– “What do you want your cake to look like ???”
– “Well mom, very easy, just put me above the cake .. so easy, easy, with my short hair and much like me .. and with flowers, please.”
For a nine-year old girl everything is easy!
I wanted to step out of the usual classic pink for girls and change for other colors, so I found a mural wallpaper design that I really liked and that is what I used to make the first floor of the cake… 100% edible paper with a vintage floral design.
The second floor was a smooth cake which should not be too crowded and of course over it my sweet Andrea … as always .. with a cute vintage green dress and a flower in her hands… and obviously with that huge smile she always has on! And so it went
A chocolate cake filled with Cheese cream nutella buttercream and covered with fondant.
Finally I ask myself which one was more difficult: making the cake or attempting to amuse Andrea’s 15 friends full of energy, which ended up being the most stressful four hours I have had in a long time…
But in the end everyone was alive, no one got hurt and above all everyone happy 🙂
Finally at the end of this long day … after having finished collecting the last popcorn off the ground … and it seems I am learning the lesson .. so again I ask the mandatory question to my next daughter:
“And you, Mia… in two months you will have your birthday so how you would like your cake to look like ???”
“ Mom, please a cake with a pony, pink with many many hearts …”
Well, this leaves me with just over a month to brainstorm again … such is life, everything centers around the children and constantly looking for ways to make them happy
Here we go again!
I wish you a happy day and of course a prosperous new year 2015 filled with much joy and less stress 😛Susana Faivet
