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.
