We're having a birthday party for my fiance's daughter this
Sunday. She's turning 10. Last year we had an "under the sea" theme, and I made a really cool cake. I tinted the icing green &
blue and peaked it up like waves. Then I put Sweedish fish (those
gummy fishies) jumping in and out of the water with toothpicks
disguised with icing. Then the seaweed, yada, yada. <OMG I
wish I had a scanner so I could just show you a pic>
Anyway, this year she wants to have a "Spring" theme. So, I
got all the Spring decorations, a springy menu (complete with
a green punch I call "bug juice")....and now for my dilemma....
She wants a "flower garden birthday cake".
Now, I am getting sorta good at cake decorating. I even bought
a Wiltman cake decorator set for beginners. <Woot!>
But a flower garden cake is a bit of a tall order!
<OK, I'm sorry this is getting so long, I just really want to make her this cake.>
So here's what I was thinking of doing: Tint the frosting green.
use the star tip to make "grass"& Green sparkly sprinkles. For the
flowers, I was gonna use my candy molds to make red chocolate
roses and stick them in the cake, then use regular rose molds to
place around the outside of the cake.
Anyhoo, if anyone has any other ideas, please share. (Heather,
I know you're reading this!) Or, we could just talk about other
seemingly impossible requests your kids have had!!!!
Thanks for reading my long post!:kiss

Wow! I figured Heather's ears would be burning by now
This one! This one! I really love this cake, but I have a boy, but I keep it bookmarked just in case!
The butterflies are molds. That fish one sounds cute, Nursey!
