Ok now for the November birthdays, my mothers and my niece the 2nd sous chef of mine her 2nd birthday is right after my mother’s which was on the 9th and nieces on the 12th! I wanted to bake her birthday cake as well as my nieces. First to tackle mama’s cake, since I wanted to surprise her with the cake I made sure I told my sisters, brothers and sister-in-laws not to get a cake…usually we wish her at 12:00 am with flowers & cake that we did minus the cake…since all her grandchildren wanted to celebrate with her. so we planned a Hi-Tea.
as soon as I was done with mama’s cake I started work on my nieces cake, since we were having a costume party for her, I chose “Tinkerbell”, I made the sketch for the cake and got everything ready for the cake but wanted to wait until we got the costume (which of a good idea) and just 2 days before her birthday we got the wrong costume...As her maternal aunt sent Princess Aurora “Sleeping Beauty”.
So I had to change the cake design and color and made the enchanted castle of sleeping beauty, it was a chocolate cake with white chocolate filling and butter cream frosting, everything was of butter cream, the roses and fairies were marzipan, and sleeping beauty is finger puppet doll. My little princess loved it.
