We celebrated my daughters 4th birthday last weekend and as promised here is her castle cake.
I made the towers from milo cake (Raspberri cupcakes) with white chocolate ganache made pink with beetroot powder. The middle of the cake was lemon yoghurt cake (Donna Hay) covered in a lemon cream cheese frosting. We used white Arnott's Tim Tams for the steps and found the purple wafers in an asian supermarket.
And of course the cake was finished with a real prince and princess complete with horse and carriage - makes one very happy little girl.
I love craft and made many aspects for the party but sadly did not spend the time capturing them beautifully with my camera.
As well as this bunting I decorated paper cups, made paper weaved lolly bags filled with shortbread and had prepared a make-your-own crown table.
I have to share some of the food we had, this one being salted caramel peanut popcorn (Anna Olson).
I've made this many times and it is always tasty.
Lemon jelly yoghurt cups, the bottom layer was made from condensed milk, lemon juice and zest and gelatin.
We ordered a tray of Sushi by request from Evie, she loves it!
And what party is complete without fairy bread!
Buttermilk scones with strawberry jam and whipped cream.
The make-your-own-crown table.
Evie and her completed crown.
Of course there was dancing.
And even a song performed by Evie with her brand new birthday guitar!
She had a fabulous day and so did I.
