I then asked her how many people the cake would be serving? 16. How appropriate. All she asked for was a 10" round cake. Hmmm....I thought Durga needed something more exciting for her Sweet 16 than a 10" round cake. So I took some creative liberty with the request and designed her cake....
It is a two-tiered chocolate fudge cake with vanilla buttercream. The decorates are all made of rolled fondant with lustre dust applied to the polka dots.
I had a lot of fun working on this cake. It had been a very long day--school, passport office (with two kids in tow), solo-dinner with the girls, bath time and then bed time. It's a tricky routine when Rob is not home. So, needless to say, I was looking forward to some 'alone' time to decorate this cake!
I'm really looking forward to the next few weeks. I have cake/cupcake orders for every Saturday in January! Next week? Hannah Montana cake and cupcakes. Following week? Girly princess cupcakes for Sophie's first birthday!
