Robbies First Birthday
My beautiful baby boy Robbie turned 1 and I made a cake for his party, a 2 tier butter cake in blue fondant and a teddy sitting on a patchwork quilt on top... the fillling was chocolate butter cream. I baked late in the week so I had to wait until the day of his party to fondant and put together the tiers of the cake, as a rule it is preferable to let the cake sit for a day so the cake doesnt move when its put together. Luckily my mum and hubby were here to help with the prep for the party and get the 4 kids ready, while I caked. So I got up early, and started with the buttercream and the filling the layers with piped icing. It was a fun job as who doesnt like icing at breakfast time?!! the kids thought they were still dreaming!!
