Times flying and my little angle turned 5 today. Seems like 5 years just went by like a breeze. Yet loaded with wonderful memories.
This year birthday has not been like the past. She has her ideas, her plans and her birthday shopping list. Signs of growing up! This birthday she wanted her favorite princess cake. She didn’t know I was going to make one for her. I decided to surprise her. I locked myself in the room saying I was in a call and asked her to stay with her daddy. At stroke of 12, we wished her and I showed her the cake. She couldn’t believe what she was seeing. Her expressions were priceless.
This is simple butter cake with butter cream-marshmallow filling and fondant icing. Well I am not a fan of fondant icing especially for kids but then to decorate such cakes they are best. Once the cake is cut I scrape some off before feeding my daughter or kids.
This is where I got help with making the princess – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sfiOcsCe4Mo and click her for the butter cream-marshmallow filling. I also used miniature marshmallows in the filling.
Cake recipe –
- Butter – 125 grams, softened
- Vanilla essence – 1 teaspoon
- Caster sugar – ¾ cup
- Eggs – 2, at room temperature
- Self-rising flour – 1 ½ cups
- Milk – ½ cup
How to –
Pre-heat the over to 160c. Grease the cake pan and set aside.
Beat butter, vanilla essence and sugar in bowl with electric beater until light and fluffy. Beat the eggs in one at a time till well combined.
Stir in the flour and milk in two batches and mix well till everything is well combined. Pour the mixture into the prepared pans and bake till done or when a tooth pick is inserted in the middle, comes out clean.
Cool on a wire rack completely before decorating the cake.
Note – make sure all the ingredients are at room temperature to start
