Audreys Cake

filed under: Miscellaneous on December 20, 2009

I had no idea what to do for Audreys first birthday cake! I sorta just made this up as I went along…






It was pretty easy to do, just lines up the side meeting on the top.

I think if I were to do this cake again, I would pay more attention to detail and make sure everything was symmetrical and straight!

    Happy Birthday Audrey!
    Wow! What a beautiful cake. Is that buttercream frosting? I tried chocolate buttercream frosting for the first time on Gary’s birthday this past Thursday. It was pretty good! Did you use 3 cake mixes for this one? This cake looks a lot taller then the ones you usually make.
    So glad you all had fun on Audrey’s birthday. Looks like she had a blast too!

    I actually kind of like that the lines are not perfectly straight…
    Beautiful cake.

  • Rachel Watters says:

    I like how your cakes match. Match as in, the outside matches/compliments the inside. Wouldn’t it be fun(ny) to do a tacky cake! But I guess a big part of eating something is that it *appeals* to your appetite visually. This might not be the case for a tacky cake ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love the fact that the lines aren’t all symmetrical and straight! It’s a homemade cake, after all, and it looks just delicious!

  • janis says:

  • ClassiclyAmber says:

    I LIKE that the lines of this cake aren’t as straight! It makes it more playful and less formal – perfection for a girlie 1st bday cake!!
