We had Bella’s family birthday party over the weekend, and of course, I baked her cake. Even though there’s nothing spectacular about it, ingredient wise, I had to devote a post to it.
I did this. I carved that 4, FREEHAND. If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you know this is a big deal for me. I refused to spend the money on a #4 cake pan, only to use it once, so I crossed my fingers and went for it. Not bad, eh?
AND, I did a crumb coat for the first time ever! Yeah, I know, I’m late to the party. It definitely made a difference. Still not perfect, but better than usual. I know this is amateur stuff to some, but not for this novice baker!
Of course, I had to include Bella’s favorite color in there somehow…hence, the purple. My nieces actually were planning on decorating the cake but we ran out of time. It’s too bad – it would have made it even better 🙂
Still can’t believe my baby is 4! Time really DOES go by fast…
