Scripture to Live By:
Fear thou not; for I am with thee; be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen the; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold the with the right hand of my righteousness.
I sought the Lord, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.
I made this cake for a precious little four year old girl in my Awana Club. She is so precious. When I ask what color she would like. She said pink was her favorite. I was also told that she liked Princess things. I was also told to make her cake part chocolate and the other part yellow.
So I made her a rectangle cake 12 x 18 inches. She here for instructions and needed supplies.
Once the cake was baked and cool down and was placed on a cake plate I began to decorate it with pink frosting. For recipe for frosting is as follows:
4 cups of powered sugar
2 sticks margarine
1 cup of Crisco
2 teaspoons of vanilla
1/3 cup evaporated milk
Beat at high speed with mixer for approximately 10 minutes.
For this cake I tripled it. (Any let over frosting, I use to decorate cupcakes.)
I colored 2/3 of the frosting pink, and started frosting the cake. I frost the top of my cake first. Some books say to frost sides first. Which ever your prefer will work.
One the cake is frosted and as smooth as I can get it I start putting the borders on the cake.
After all borders are on the cake I then write the greeting on the cake. This little four year old girl can read her name in print. So I decided to print the greeting so she could read it on her cake.
I doubled the printing. First in pink and then I went over it in white. This made it stand out more.
I put little white dots around the top border.
I went to the Dollar Tree and got her 4 Princess figurines. (One for each year.)
I then took the white frosting I had left and mixed up some darker pink frosting as well as some yellow and some green to make flowers and leaves from.
I made some pink daisies with yellow centers using #103 rose tip to make the petals and a writing tip #3 for the center.
My frosting is butter cream frosting and it never gets hard, so when I make flowers I put them in the freezer to freeze them and work placing them on the cake while frozen.
Next I add the leaves directly onto the cake, using a leaf tube.
Cake finished? No not yet.
I wanted to make it just a little more special for this little one, so I added some edible pearls, to outline her greeting and the top border of her cake. I used tweezers to place the pearls in place.
Now her cake is finished and it is ready to deliver it. Oh, I hope she likes it.
I am so thankful to have the privilege to make cakes for others and perhaps give them a blessing.
Blessings to you dear friends,
