Pink & Purple Cakes

It's Spring Break and man, am I relaxed! I have tons of university work to tend to but being the procrastinator that I am, I can't help but sleep in those extra few hours and go out spontaneously with friends. I'm going to miss being a student..

The other day I received an order for a lovely lady's daughter's birthday party. She wanted two cakes to match her pink and purple theme. She didn't ask for anything else in specific and told me to just be creative about it and keep it girly. I gotta say, it's quite refreshing to get cake orders where I can do as I please ;)

The pink cake, with a bit of a Spring theme:

Tried my hand at a basket weave

And the elegant purple cake:


And part of the order was 50 mini cupcakes in, of course, pink and purple:

Did I mention how much fun it is to decorate with edible glitter?

Happy Baking!
