I don’t know any little girls called Emma

I really don’t know any little girls called Emma. I do know a twenty-something woman called Emma, and this was her birthday cake. She was having a kid’s birthday party and said she really wanted a princess cake. Challenge accepted. I didn’t plan this one at all, I woke up on the day of the party and thought “ah, I should make the cake”. Luckily she specified “boring” for the actual cake, not that vanilla sponge, vanilla buttercream and jam is boring. I wasn’t about to try a full on princess castle, I did attempt a fondant crown but gave up and went for hearts instead. You might not be able to tell from the photos, but the overall colour is a very light pink, which I love, plus I got to use my gold shimmer dust and some shimmer sugar which have been sitting in the cupboard waiting for their time to shine. It went down pretty well. Sorry for the rubbish photos, my camera died.

Dairy free princess cake


Recipe was the same as Jake’s birthday cake, but split into three sandwich tins and baked for 25 minutes at 160°C (fan oven).
