Daisy Birthday Cake

I mentioned that I got to bake a birthday cake for a three-year-old’s party last weekend and I’m happy to report that it went well!

The birthday theme was “Young, Wild, and Three” and had a hippie vibe. My friend asked for a white almond daisy cake with pastel daisies all over it. There ended up being over 60 guests, so I made a 9-inch layer cake and a small sheet cake.

Step one was to bake and assemble the cake layers. I used a classic white cake recipe and added almond extract. I leveled each layer and put vanilla buttercream between them.

Once the cake was assembled, I crumb coated it in more vanilla buttercream. One more layer of frosting and then it was time for the fondant!

I rolled out this pastel fondant and used these daisy plungers to cut out different sizes of flowers. I placed the flowers all over the cake and then did the same for the sheet cake.

I boxed everything up and brought it all to the party! My friend added a little topper and it was good to go for the birthday girl and guests 😊
