Yesterday was my son’s first birthday and I’ve been planning on having a nice colorful cake. It turned out that ordering a cake like that was quite pricy in Paris, so I’ve decided I will learn to make it myself. What a self-confidence, right? Fortunately, the birthday wave started about one month ago and I had the oportunity to make several tries which were also quite successful (well, for a beginner of course).
It was quite tasty actually, but obviously the visualisation wasn’t its strength 🙂 The second one was better outside than inside…
But finally, the most important one turned well – outside and inside! 🙂
(If you are wondering, the circle in the middle is for the candle and it is supposed to read “Yann 1 year”)
Here are some photos of the process:
Once I have the cake baked and the different “floors” stuck together, I use butter cream to spread around so that the covering sticks better on the top.
This is the glucose syrup I use to glue the small details to the cake
