Happy Birthday Zeze!!!

To celebrate my eldest sister's birthday, Allison - fondly known as Zeze by the youngest members of our family I contacted my junior design consultant, Ruby (5yrs old).  Ruby suggested I make a "big big cupcake and decorate it with flowers, hearts and in Zeze's favourite colour".  I have satisfied most of the brief, but with only one heart and a few butterflies were substituted.

The cake itself is a crowd pleasing favourite; Vanilla Bean iced with Vanilla Bean Buttercream.

Birthday Double

I can only claim responsibility for decorating both cakes (baked by my neighbour) for this double celebration; -  3rd and 1st Birthdays.

Maddion's cake was decorated to replicate the beautiful Princess dress she received for her birthday.

Henry's cake was a gluten free cake and to avoid any risks I played it very safe, opting for gluten free buttercream and several fondant decorations on the base board..
