Cake for Two!

{Or three or four…}

I love these smaller cakes – they’re just so perfect for an intimate gathering and too cute! Also great if you want to have a few different cakes at your party – you can do 2 or 3 different ‘mini’ cakes.

And they’re not even that small – about 15cm and quite tall.

This is a vanilla sponge with honey buttercream and a custom white chocolate birthday message, along with some fondant honey bees.

Little Mermaid Birthday Cakes

As you know, I have 2 boys and lack a bit of girly presence in the house. Everything is always about spiders and bugs and Spider-Man and all those boy-things…

Funny enough, most of my novelty cake orders are for boys… Ninja Turtles, Spider-Man, Avengers, etc.

So, whenever I get asked to do a girly-themed cake, I’m even more delighted and excited to get stuck in.

This cake was for our dear little next-door-neighbour-birthday-girl, who turned 6:

The cake had pink and turquoise layers inside – vanilla sponge with vanilla buttercream.

 

Also within the Mermaid theme – my specialty carrot cake with Mermaid-themed white chocolate decorations:
