I used to be a little girl, and helping celebrate little girl’s birthdays with beautiful, fanciful, amazing cakes is so much fun for me! So far, most of my girls’ birthday cakes have been made for my girls. Actually, the very first fancy cake I ever made and decorated was for my daughter’s fourth birthday: a My Little Pony cake. That was the first time I ever made my own frosting. That was when I scoured the Internet on how to make a moist cake, smooth frosting and how to put a picture on a cake. That was when I bought a cupcake decorator to pipe my borders because I was intimidated by pastry bags. I have learned a lot since then; my cupcake decorator now collects dust in its drawer. Anyway, one year later, the cake for my daughter’s fifth birthday shows just how far I’ve come… and I’m still going.
