Would you look at that! It’s my first post for September! No excuses from this delinquent foodie home cook. There are a few recipes that I tried and cakes that I’ve created that I want to share with you all. Hopefully, they’ll find their way to this blog soon. For now, let me tell you about the cake I made last month for my most favorite girl…my daughter. *wink*
My daughter feels “cake envy” almost over each and every one of the birthday cakes for girls that I’ve created since her last birthday. She thinks they’re better than the birthday cakes I made for her. Well, I know where she’s coming from. I had to explain that over time, I get better and better at what I do. Still, I feel guilty…always. So I promised her an awesome birthday cake, one that is supposed to be my best cake yet. How’s that for a tall order?
For my girl’s 7th birthday birthday cake, I attempted to make my first topsy turvy cake, which also happened to be my first 3-tier cake…
I can’t even begin to tell you how hard I worked on this cake. It isn’t perfect but I love love how everything came together! The cake had a dance theme with a little sprinkling of glitz and glam. How fun and exciting is that?!
The top and bottom tiers were mocha chiffon, while the middle tier was chocolate. My daughter did wish that it was the other way around – chocolate for the top and bottom tiers and mocha for the middle tier. But more people like the mocha chiffon! She could have had the middle tier all to herself! Hee hee. Oh well.
To add a little more of that dance vibe and feel, I had two blinking lights pointed at the cake.
I’m happy I was able to pull this one off. I got through the day with only an hour of sleep. I wouldn’t mind (ever!) challenging myself again for my daughter’s next birthday cake. :)
Cheers, y’all! Mabuhay!
