A cake for Nan’s 94th birthday
December 5, 2012
We were heading down south for Nan’s birthday get together with the family and we decided a cake would be a fab addition to her present and it would be something she can share out with people in the home and spread the birthday celebrations around.
I had 3 cakes on all due for the same day so I needed a simple yet elegant design and it was Kev who suggested doing something with frills as they do look classy on a cake.
It was a simple white and purple cake, with frills and flowers used to decorate it with a birthday message across the top.
I love using my frill tool to create a frilled edge to the decoration and it requires regular practice other wise I seem to lose the technique! I remember in cake class there were a couple of people who got frilling straight away but for others, including myself it took us a while to actually start making the icing curl rather than it just looking like its been squashed a little!
Happy Birthday Nan, hope you enjoyed eating the cake and sharing it around your friends.
