Jonathan’s 1st birthday.

September'14 1000

This endeavor was about a lot of firsts.

1. My little mans 1st birthday.
2. First time I did a 2 tier cake.
3. First time I prepared Swiss Meringue buttercream (SMB).
3. First time I worked with fondant.

Like I said, a lot of firsts. And I was terrified throughout the 2 days I took to get the cake ready. I was even dreaming about butter, sugar and my hand mixer.

The cake was a two tier cake. Both the tiers were a combo of vanilla and chocolate cake iced with vanilla SMB. Which was then covered and decorated with vanilla fondant.

Happy birthday Jonathan.

My Bucket List

This is my to-do Bake-make list.. things that I absolutely want to bake within 2014.

1. Cinnamon Roll
2. Cake pops
3. Blondie
4. Éclairs
5. Cheesecake
6. Sugar Cookies
7. Ghee (Clarified butter) cake

I think keeping the list to 7 is enough at the moment.. short and sweet. at least till I start scratching these off… There are maybe a gazillion other dishes/goodies that I want to make.. but am trying to stay focused and finish at least a few.. instead of just looking at pictures and drooling.. What say?? 😉

Will keep updating the list under the ‘My Bucket List’ page..

Spreading some love.. and cake. 😉
