Today is my birthday and once again I’ve made my own cake!
I’ve made my own birthday cake since I first started baking back in 2011 and I have loved every one of them! It’s always something I look forward to.
This year, I was busy making my friends wedding cake most of the week as well as prepping for my birthday holiday, by the time you read this, I will be sitting on the beach with a cocktail in hand!
As I wasn’t having a party this year, just a few friends over for some nibbles, and I was flying early (5am!) the next morning, I made a simpler cake this year, one that could be easily sliced and popped into some foil for my nearest and dearest to take away with them!
I still love it though. Five layers of coloured vanilla sponge, soft velvety buttercream and coated in aqua buttercream ‘scales’. Topped with edible handmade shells, sprinkles and a Little Mermaid keepsake topper.
