My daughter's fourth birthday is coming up in a few days, and I recently realized that I never got around to posting last year's cake! Maybe it's because I thought the cake was just, meh, and it was nothing spectacular. Or maybe it's because I baked and decorated it in a rush the day of her birthday, and I didn't have time to properly photograph it. In any case, she had asked for a purple Hello Kitty cake, and that is what she got!
I still remember how cute she was that day; she wanted to "be a princess" and wear her pink tutu all day. She even got to lick the spatula after I finished making the whipped cream frosting!
I used the whipped cream frosting to fill and frost three layers of homemade chocolate cake, for a very light and moist 6-inch layer cake.
After the top and sides of the cake were frosted, I finished it off with a shell border.
Since my little girl loves sprinkles, I threw some heart-shaped ones on along the shell border.
Stay tuned for the cake I end up making for her this year - she has already placed her request!
