Call me crazy but I’m so excited it’s Monday! I had 5 orders in the past two days and the fact that I’m semi-functioning is a miracle in itself (thanks to a 4.5hr nap). I really miss those days when I could say, “Thank God It’s Friday!” and do my Friday-happy-dance. Now it’s “Thank God It’s Monday!” but I usually get weird stares from people when I say that. I can feel you staring right now!!
It was Claire’s 4th birthday party today and their parents ordered a fairytale-esque unicorn cake from me with rainbows and flowers and glitter… and more glitter! Gosh, I LOVE glitter! It makes the cake come alive (figuratively) and who doesn’t like sparkly things? I have to admit, I sometimes get carried away with the glittering part and over-glitter. Is that even possible? So when the birthday girl/boy takes a picture with the cake, all you see is one big bright spot from the camera flash. That’s when you know you’ve over-glittered.
I love using the element of vertical lines
on the bottom tier because it creates the illusion that the cake is taller than it actually is. And I love the purple/pink colour combo. Growing up, those were my two favourite colours! I secretly still love it
This cake was a moist chocolate cake with banana buttercream + 4 layers of sliced bananas. Oh-em-gee deliciousness! This was my first time making banana buttercream and I had a fear that it would turn brown if I left it out too long so I blended the bananas in RIGHT when the cake was ready to be filled + layered. The buttercream was just the right amount of sweetness + it was so banana-yyy! I couldn’t stop eating it and it tasted even better with the chocolate cake. If you’re wondering… no, I did not take a chunk of the cake out — I had lots of scraps from leveling the cake tops and we all know that cake tops + banana-y buttercream + banana ends = happiness
Anyways… I’ll post the pictures from the rest of the weekend later this week. I regret not taking photos at the bridal shower cupcake workshop on Saturday but I’m sure they’re on Facebook somewhere. Go look for them
