Shortly after returning home from Idaho (extensive posts about my trip coming soon) my friend Laura asked me to make a birthday cake for her little girl Sydnei. It seems that Sydnei feels she was born in the wrong decade… she is a hippie through and through!
Do you remember the Mermaid Cake I made last year? Well THAT cake was for Katana (Laura’s other daughter) and Sydnei’s cake needed to be just THAT special!
So we discussed the options and decided that I would make Sydnei a “Hippie Bus” with a little girl on top to look like her daughter. What fun!!!
I baked the cake at Mike’s Moms house (since I still don’t have the reno complete… soon!) and Mike decided that he wanted to help me carve and decorate it. We had a blast! I was so thrilled to use some of the over-piping ideas I had learned in Idaho with Davids Cakes and also add my own little finishing touches.
Laura was thrilled… Sydnei was thrilled… and another Pretty Cake was enjoyed by all!
I love my life!
P.S. this Pretty Cake was Vanilla with pink and green rainbow bits, vanilla buttercream and vanilla fondant!Tags: birthday cake, buttercream icing, Cake Decorating, Davids Cakes, fondant, fondant modelling, Hippie Bus, piping, Pretty Cakes, Royal Icing
