Daisy' s Birthday

I can't believe 5 years has passed since the birth of my grandaughter Daisy. She was born 12 weeks premature and was a teeny tiny baby and caused us so much worry. Now she is a bright, beautiful, chatty, strong, healthy little girl so full of life and mischief. More than able to keep up with her boisterous brothers and cousins.

Daisy had asked me to make her a birthday cake and cupcakes for her party. The theme was “Frozen” which is her favourite Disney movie. I was quite daunted when Daisy showed me images of the birthday cakes she liked. I decided I needed some help so I did a search on eBay and managed to buy a "Frozen Scene" made out of edible rice/wafer paper. It arrives flat packed and you have to cut out all of the pieces which is quite a chore but over all I was very pleased with the effect.
I borrowed a snow flake cutter from a friend and made lots of fondant snowflakes to decorate the sides of the cake and finished off with a piped butter cream edging.

What do you think.........................

Daisy was really pleased and if you don't look to closely I think the cake has turned out well. The biggest worry was transporting the birthday cake and cupcakes to the party; however we did manage to arrive with everything intact.

I'm glad I have some breathing space before the next birthday, it keeps me busy having 6 grandchildren, although Laura is a fab cake maker.
