HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR CLAIRE :)

























Today is my buddy Claire's birthday.  This is the fourth birthday cake that I had personally baked and iced for her since knowing her as a blogger :)   Rustic looking eh, but made with lots of love and passion.  The passion for baking and the love for this dear friend resulted in this piece of arty rustic looking  birthday cake.  I like the fact that it looked homemade with  poor workmanship but let me tell you , don't be deceived by the look as the saying goes....never judge a book by its cover.  It is the best smelling cake in town for today....hahaha * self praise is motivation praise for me...  LOL!  

HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR CLAIRE

May God Bless you with Good health 
Happiness all the year through
and 
many many more birthdays to come !


























Curious to know what cake I baked for her.........................?????

























trying my hand at sugar icing frosting...not much of a success
but there is improvement...I hope her next one would
be a better one where the icing is concerned....
for the time being, it is the best so far :p 

























in my haste, I almost left out the letter  ' i ' but luckily there was a slight gap between
the A and R  LOL!  managed to squeeze in the letter  ' i '

























the strawberries managed to hide the flaws ;p
and brings out the cheerful  LOL!

























okay........the answer to what cake did I bake for Claire.....
It is Moist Butter Cake with sugar icing!
the color of the icing is a sweet pink but due
to the lighting, it looks a bit orangey :p

times
