There was a while between the last cake and this one where I really just had no reason to bake. It was a little tragic.
Then I got a call/email/text (I don’t remember which) from my sister’s coworker who needed a cake for her daughter’s upcoming first birthday.
Delighted with the opportunity to take on a real commission, I also needed some practice. So, I picked up some ingredients and got to work on this cake, which - though adorable - does not use any of the same design techniques as the cake I actually made for the birthday party.
