Having completed a basic cake decorating course in mid December 2010, a good friend kindly volunteered the occasion of her eldest daughter’s birthday as an ideal opportunity for me to practice my new found skills. And so the process of creating a princess' castle cake began. Looking at the photos now, 15 months later, my eyes are drawn to all the flaws and I think of how much better it would be if I were to create a castle cake today. However, this cake acts as a nice reminder of how I’ve progressed over time.
Despite its basic nature, this princess' castle cake will always be a particularly special cake for me, as I remember the look of wonderment and awe on the face of the 4 year old princess as she saw her princess' castle for the first time. In her eyes there were no flaws. It’s always nice to give a birthday present which is received so enthusiastically.
