I imagine if you have a birthday that falls on or around Valentine’s day you probably end up with roses or heart shaped gifts quite frequently! This chocolate cake was for a very sweet four year old and I enjoyed the opportunity to get the heart shaped cake tins out! The chocolate Italian meringue buttercream is always nice to work with – it is easy to get a lovely, smooth finish and the resulting cake was pretty and perfect for a birthday in mid February!
Purple, pink and gold royal icing decoration on this chocolate birthday cake for a 30th birthday.
Some well loved lyrics were piped onto this cake in a spiral. Thoroughly nerve wracking to get the spacing right while piping the icing!
A cake for Leo – who has been a regular customer since my cake making adventures began.
