She said she wanted her cake to be a surprise and I was keen to try my giant cupcake mould again so I settled on that idea for her and to make it 'girly'.
I made flowers, glittery hearts, rosebuds, butterflies to decorate with and did her name spelt out on glittery hearts.
I also decided to cover the base using fondant icing (You-Tubing again) and it was ok to do actually, I thought I might run into problems but it was relatively simple. It took a bit of time smoothing the grooves into the icing but once done it looked very effective. I iced the top in a pale pink buttercream and decorated it up.
All the colours were actually a lot paler in 'real-life', they seem to have come out quite vivid on the pictures. I used a mixture of white, pale pink, hot pink & lilac / purple.
She loved it which was all that mattered to me!
The Beautiful Birthday Girl!!
