Crown Birthday Cake - Red Velvet and Chocolate Moist


My daughter turned 10 today!  She's been looking forward for her big day for months and months and months.  When I asked her what cake does she wants and her answer was 'Princess Cake'.  Since last year I made her a castle princess cake, I decided to make her a Crown one this year.  Even though I'm at 'elementary stage' with fondant icing, the joy at seeing her happy expression when she saw her cake was indescribable.  For her, mommy is just awesome in making her dream cake.  Mommy's imperfection and sloppy work is just wonderful!!  She made my day - all the effort and the days of preparing the cake makes it all worth the while.  I'm truly glad I made the cake for her :)...

And the crown not only decorated the cake but everyone took turn at 'wearing' the crown...but of course, it was thrown away after that as nobody would want to have a lick at the gum paste!  hhaahahaa..

The bottom cake is Red Velvet and the top cake is Chocolate Moist.  Both cakes are sandwiched with cream cheese filling with butter cream as the outer layer and then covered with fondant.


After this project, my youngest girl placed an 'order' for her birthday cake next month - an Angry Bird Cake!! Hmmm...a challenge indeed!










Happy 10th Birthday, our sweet darling Cait! Por Por (Grandma) is overlooking you with love from heaven above together with Lord Buddha and will always keep you safe and happy!

Thanks to Khai Ma and Khai Yeh in making time all the way from Ipoh to join in Caitlyn's birthday celebration at La Gomera!  Last but not least, to all the wonderful and loving Ah Ees and Ee Teows, Ah Em and Ah Pek and cousins too..thank you for all the wonderful presents!

  5. happy birthday to your little princess!! i'm sure this red velvet and choc cake taste delicious with that cream cheese. Secondly, i must tell you that you did such a wonderful work here with the fondant, that's really a beautiful cake and the crown. I really think making a fondant cake is a tough job. My fondant carrots are nothing compared to these!!
