Happy birthday my dearest Charissa! This is a cake for my 3rd child's 3 year old birthday! She loves cats so she requested for a cat cake this year. I love how simple 3 year olds are, how they are fascinated by the cats and birds in the surroundings, how they stop to smell the flowers. Sometimes I wish they don't grow up so fast =p
Hehe, so back to the cake, I used a tried and tested recipe that I've used many times, my Strawberry yoghurt-vanilla chiffon cake (recipe link in previous post). And for the cat, the same reduced egg yolk vanilla chiffon in 2 bowls and cake pops for the arms.
The teachers had asked whether the cat was a toy or could be eaten when I brought out the cake lol!
Ah, I rarely have cut slices of my cakes as they are almost always gifts or birthday cakes for other people. But I finally have a cut slice from today's cake a I was the mum-cum-official cake cutter lol. You can from the slice that the crumbs are very fine, tender and soft. The cake was finished in no time! But no one could bear to eat the face.. I think it's because there were no boys in the class. Usually the boys fight for the head while girls can't bear to eat it haha! My girls were fighting for the hidden marshmallows inside the cake! =)
