Welcome and thank you for checking out my page!
I've received a lot of comments about this cake so decided to share some information for those wanting to try. I am a complete amateur to baking so if I can do it so can you.
We recently celebrated our little girl's first birthday and had a teddy bear picnic theme. Due to not as many people being able to attend I didn't go all out as I planned initially but below you'll see my dessert table, not fully completed.
For the recipe, I have an amazing 'go to' that everyone raves on about. It's a vanilla cake and you can grab the recipe here https://www.recipetineats.com/my-very-best-vanilla-cake/ . I also used the icing listed here and all the portions were the right amount with icing left over. You can obviously use whatever recipe you wish but I guarantee you will love this one!
I iced the light brown area's first as you'll see below, then the heart then the eyes. I piped the rest with Wilton piping attachment 233. My piping is definitely not the best and I've seen it done in many other ways but I didn't spend the time learning the correct technique.
Decorating probably took nearly two hours including being interrupted by my lovely two children and I wasn't going at a fast speed. I cooked and decorated the cake the day before the party so I wasn't rushed and it was still fresh and held really well.
Besides the ingredients listed in the cake recipe I used the following items:
