Birthday princess

Laurie's birthday cake

My most recent culinary commission was a birthday cake for my four year old niece who had a very clear idea of what she wanted. The creative brief which I received via my sister specified that it had to be a chocolate cake with chocolate icing with pink smarties around the edge and a pink ribbon and a ballet dancer on top. Think I fulfilled it?

She looks pretty pleased doesn't she.

The dancer and candles are from The Cook's Cupboard. There was a sharp intake of breath at the postage and packing fee (which was the same amount as the cost of the items) but they came really quickly and wrapped in lovely pale aqua tissue paper - almost as if they knew they were for a VIP (that's very important princess) birthday cake.

Laurie is FOUR?? I remember being sat in the pub whilst you were knitting baby things for yet-to-be-born or only-just-born Laurie. Wow, that time has flown by.

The cake looks fabulous, and she looks overjoyed with it. Well done you!
