18th Birthday

A beast of a cake!!!  This cake was HUGE!!  The bottom tier was chocolate with chocolate buttercream filling, middle tier was vanilla and the top tier was lemon.

It took me a week to bake and decorate the cake tiers, then they had to be dowelled and stacked but I decided to do that at the venue in case there were any mishaps on the way there in the car.  Once there I placed the rolled balls round the tiers to finish off.

Looked good though when all finished, but I have to say I wouldn't be in a rush to do a 3 tier cake again anytime soon!

Harry & His Bucketful of Dinosaurs - For Ethan

Ethan is 3.  Ethan is slightly interested in dinosaurs.  They are his most favourite things.....IN THE WORLD!!  For his second birthday last year I did him a baby dinosaur and for his third birthday at the weekend I think we've taken it up a notch!.......

This is my take on Harry & His Bucketful of Dinosaurs (Google is a marvellous thing seeing as I had no idea who Harry was, let alone his dinosaurs!!).  Cake inspiration came from The Whole Cake & Caboodle who made a beautiful cake from which I tried to re-create.
