PostHeaderIcon Birthday Cake

IMG_2813After a couple of trial runs, here’s the birthday cake I baked, layered, filled and decorated for my son who just turned 1 year old on June 28th.

It took days to get it to the final stage: I baked the cakes on Friday afternoon, layered them in the evening. I made the fillings (1 layer was coconut, the other home made prune jam) late Friday evening. I made the sauce (to moisten the cake) Saturday morning and then put the cake together in the afternoon.

Sunday morning I decorated with the cream and the edible animals. Then Sunday afternoon was the birthday party and we ate almost the entire cake! It took a lot of work, but I made it with love for my baby boy!
