A Very Princess Birthday

Phew, I think March is definitely my busiest Month for cakes as well as having a couple of cupcake orders last week I have 66 cupcakes to make this week alone for birthdays, bake sales, St Patrick's day and Mothers day. I love it though and I'm hopefully also going to have time to try a few new flavours out too and prepare for making batches of hot cross buns for Easter.

However my most important baking adventure last week was definitely a surprise birthday cake for one of my best friends Alex, or as I call her, Princess! We were going for a meal for Alex's birthday and I'd decided I definitely wanted to drop a cake off at the restaurant for them to bring out, knowing full well she would relish in the fuss over her! haha. Any way all I had to do was decide on the design of the cake. I went with a plain Vanilla sponge with buttercream as Alex and a few other friends have given up chocolate for lent (Madness) and for the design there was really only one option, over the top bling! Alex loves anything sparkly and over the top, so I knew straight away a girly over the top cake was were I was headed. I decided on pink icing with princess Alex written in white, I then had to find something for the middle! And then I found the giant pink feathers and sparkly stars! So they blocked the word princess from view at the front but it really didn't matter as they were so very Alex. Any way here's the cake:

And the back:

Any way the cake was very well received and her face when they brought it out in the restaurant was priceless and well worth the effort of making it! Here's a little closer picture of the bling!

And that's the princess cake.
