Veronica, a mom from Las Vegas, sent us these pictures of the cake she made for her daughter Fiona’s 5th birthday. “I started with one decorating idea, but it didn’t work, so I made purple (her favourite colour) ruffles and added vintage ballerina candle holders that I had found at an antique store a few months before.” Here is a link to her blog post about the birthday party.
She also sent us pictures from another cake she made, which is also beautiful. “Since my husband’s birthday is only a few days later, I made him this cake (that Fiona assumed was hers too). I used a star tip and gumdrops on top and a trim on the bottom (I ran out of frosting!)
(By the way, we’d love to see your pictures—preferably horizontals—of silly, funny, clever, or otherwise show-stopping birthday cakes you or someone you know has made. And if you’re further inspired, we’d love to see the whole party. Send us an email to email@example.com. Please include your name, how you would like to be credited, the occasion, the recipe, and the inspiration or story behind the cake. Images must be 550×380 pixels wide.)
