Princess Castle Birthday Cake

October sees the beginning of Birthday Season in our house. It’s Holly in October, Ella in November and mine in December. So I’m full on into Pinterest birthday cake mode. (What on earth did we do before Pinterest? Oh, that’s right, we looked at our Women’s Weekly Birthday Cake books.)

Holly has decided she wants Peppa Pig.

Ella has decided she wants Strawberry Shortcake. (Wasn’t that something Nan used to cook?)

I’m not sure why I feel the need to have to cook a cake each year, but I do. If I’m honest with myself, I quite enjoy the challenge. Maybe in a past life I was a birthday cake maker. Maybe.

These are the cakes we’ve made over the last couple of years:

I refuse to put up Ella’s Wizard of Oz cake from last year. It was the biggest failure. And, as is always the case, the first cake anyone outside our family had witnessed. This year it’s family only!

Do you go through a birthday season each year? What cakes have you made before?

  1. Funny you should ask about cakes. I’ve made enough to write a blog post about it. I don’t usually bomb comments with links to my posts but this may help you. Mainly boys cakes but a few girls ones as well http://www.desireempire.com/2012/07/birthday-cake.html

    Thanks for hosting.
