The real indicator of the birthday party season having arrived is that I made my first birthday cake this past week. On the weekend my mummy's group had a bbq to celebrate all the kids birthdays. It was a fantastic day! Since being back at work I haven't been able to catch up with them as much so it was nice to see them all. We decided on a fairtytale theme because the babies were born in the year of the dragon. Fairytales seemed a bit more unisex rather than just dragons. To fit in with the theme I made a castle cake.
The cake was my standard chocolate mudcake recipe with chocolate ganache. The lavender fondant I bought already coloured from Spotlight. It is by Satin Ice. All other fondants were by Fondariffic. I bought mini waffle cones from the supermarket for the turrets. I used skewers to hold them into the cake and added paper flags to the top. This is honestly a super easy cake to make! I prefer cakes that look more cartoony rather than realistic. They are super cute and super easy to make!
