Of late I am into making birthday cakes for kids. How I love to see the delight in their eyes when these kids see their cake for the first time. These expressions are priceless. I now I understand why parents go through thick and thin just to get cakes of their kid's choice. I must confess that I failed miserably in this aspect. In the past (before I embarked on this cake quest), when it comes to Sydney's birthday it is the usual off the shelf cake from bakery. Nothing fancy, just a cake with her favourite character drawn on mostly using coloured piping gel. If only I could turn back the clock, I would love to see her expression when presented with a 3D cake of her favourite character.
This cake for my colleague's 7 year old son in conjunction with his Transformer movie party. This is a butter cake decorated with buttercream. What I like about this cake is, it has very few colours. Though few colours yet no compromise on the outlook of the cake. When it comes to children's cake, I prefer not to use too many colours. The least the better.
