Best Birthday Cake Ever

Standard

One thing I wanted for my birthday was a cake so cool that when it was presented, everyone would clap and cheer, just like they do for the Cake Boss. Simple enough, right? So my friend Andrea decided that instead of paying a ton of money to get an awesome cake for me, she’d do it herself!

The only thing I knew about it was that it was going to be lavender/lemon flavored and that I was going to really like it. She totally exceeded my expectations, and when she presented the cake, everyone cheered and clapped. No joke!

She made the base round cake, covered it in fondant she also made herself, used a stamping tool to look like basket weave, and intertwined the rolled fondant edge. She (I think) scooped other baked pieces into 3 round spheres and covered them with fondant and fondant spaghetti shaped stuff made from like a play-doh press.

The final, though inedible, touch was the knitting needles she stuck in the top.

I can’t decide if it tasted better or looked better.

But thanks to the photos I get to have my cake, and I ate it too.

Andrea- care to comment on your work?

  1. I’m so glad you liked the cake, Kristen. It was an interesting process learning how to make it, which kind of re-fueled my love of baking awesome things. Expect to be tasting more delicious treats from me in the future!

  2. That looks gorgeous, too good to eat in fact. I’m glad you took photos to share before you ate it as it’s definitely a cake you’ll want to look back on in future. By the sounds of it it tasted quite good too, though I’ve never come across lavender flavoured cake before.
