I was asked to bake a cake for a very adorable 1-year old to celebrate his birthday :)
His name is Dragon, and I was thinking of doing something along the theme of dragonfly.
In the end, my husband helped me come up with the idea of having a cake pond, surrounded by bug cupcakes.
Lemon cheesecake with agar agar topping and strawberry fish.
My husband did the strawberry fish and aren't they just simply amazing???? I was totally doubtful when he told me he was going to attempt to make fish out of strawberries. But looking at it now, it looks almost natural. The fish actually look like they are swimming!
The whole set-up:
Who knew bugs could look so tasty ? ;)
The bday boy and his parents:
All-in-all I think the party went well. I hope everyone was happy with the dessert *cross fingers*
So if you haven't gone to Bakerella's website by now, you most certainly should! She knows how to make anything sweet look good :)
I had to attend a kid's bday party today and the theme was Hello Kitty.
So I decided to do a "cake pop" Hello Kitty aka Bakerella, but it didn't exactly go as plan.
To cut a long story short, a lack of time and practice made me scrap the "pop" idea and just go with the traditional cake. But of course I added two mini Hello Kitty cake pops/balls to decorate the cake.
Chocolate cake with Cream Cheese Frosting
The Hello Kitty is made with the same cake, cream cheese, coating with candy melts, and edible marker
At the party, the cake went fast, but somehow people didn't touch the Hello Kitties!
