I'm sure every mothers in the world agree with me that they will try their very best and effort to make their children's dreams and wishes come true as much as they can. This year, my little girl, Angelica has wished for a 'Barbie Doll' cake ……and she specifically wanted me to bake it. In fact she has been asking for this cake since her last year's birthday……but because I only started to bake last year August, I really wasn't confident that I'll be able to come up with such a beautiful 'standing' doll cake.
Therefore, not to disappoint a little girl's wish, I struggled to make a 'sitting Little Mermaid' cake for her last birthday instead……..hehe. I wasn't very satisfied with that cake but......My little girl is a very 'easily satisfied' girl, and she loved it just as much. Therefore, I made a promise to her that this year when she celebrate her 6th birthday, I'll make a standing Barbie Doll cake for her, just the one she has always wanted.
As she also wanted to celebrate this year's birthday with her classmates for the last time in this pre-school (as she will be proceeding to Primary One next year) , she wanted a "Princess in Pink" birthday theme……..and I am more than happy to grant her her wishes…..^-^
And so, I made her these "Princess" theme cupcakes with the major color 'Pink'…….we have all the Disney's Princess character like Aurora of Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Snow White, Belle of Beauty and the Beast, Jasmine of Aladdin and Ariel of Little Mermaid……..of course, we also have some fairy magic wands, sweethearts, pink tiaras and some ice creams (one of Angel's favourite ……with lots of sprinkles on it) ;)
Besides that, I have also made some 'Sugar Cookies' for her to be packed into the party packs for her classmates. As this month's Daring Bakers Challenge is making 'Sugar Cookies', it's the perfect timing for me to bake some sugar cookies and also practice on decorating them too. Thanks to this month's Daring Bakers' host – Mandy from "What the Fruitcake?!".
Last but not least, the promised "Barbie Doll" cake that Angelica has always wanted. I'm glad everything came out perfectly as I wanted it to be, I'm very satisfied with the outcome this time, though I might not be perfect to some of you (who are much more experience in this field than me) but ….……for me, seeing my little girls' eyes lite up and her smiling face just froze there for period of time, the peck on my cheek and the little 'bear-hug' she gave me, tells me that she is very much appreciates my work and my effort in making her this year's birthday the 'happiest day in her life'........therefore all hard work and sleepless nights I put in for all these preparations……it all worth it! Cheers, Cynthia!! LOL
Happy Birthday Angel, my sweetie, you will always be my little angel and Mummy will try my very best to make your every wish come true!!
May the good Lord bless you, Sweetie, Love you always……xoxo!!
