A first birthday cake

This past weekend my second cousin turned one and to celebrate the occasion, the family all gathered at a park on the sunny Gold Coast and enjoyed some good company … as well as some cake. 

The bottom layer of this cake was white chocolate mudcake with strawberry buttercream  and the top tier was strawberry, white chocolate mudcake with vanilla buttercream.  Such a great combination of flavours! 

I really enjoyed getting back into baking and decorating and I was really pleased with how it turned out… although I’m not planning on making any cakes with ruffles again for a while, they are very fiddly!
