We were stoked to have been asked to make Miss Genevieve's eleventh birthday cake this year, and to also host her Cake Me! kids party, our FIRST official Cake Me! kids party!!
It's been five years since we made Genevieve's sixth birthday cake, how time has flown. To celebrate the beginning of winter, Gen decided on a Winter Wonderland themed party this year - and was very explicit when stating that it was a Winter themed cake and NOT a Frozen themed cake. We were told that anything to do with "blue, penguins, snowflakes, igloos are fine" ;) Clearly Frozen is for the younger crowd and Gen is now a young lady.
Gen's sculpted iceberg cake was so much fun to design and create. I won't lie, for a moment there I did wonder whether I had been over zealous and had gone overboard with the sculpting, destroying an otherwise beautiful 5 tiers of white chocolatey goodness. But google images reassured me that icebergs do come in all shapes and sizes.
My main priorities were for the penguins to have a slippery slide to dive head first into the icy turquoise water, and for the baby penguins to have a warm and cozy cave to huddle safely in.
Judging by the expression on the birthday girl's face, I'm ecstatic to say that the mission was accomplished :D.
