Leopard Sweet Sixteen
Oh to be young agian... This cake was made for Kelly, whose family and friends threw a surprise party for her to celebrate her 16th birthday. She certainly was surprised!! What a lucky girl to be surrounded with those she loves on her birthday, and what a nice mom and family to organize the whole thing for her.
Kelly's mother requested a 20-25 serving cake decorated with an animal print and "something pink". This design is what I came up with and Kelly's mom approved - a big pink bow on a hand-painted leopard print cake, with pink pearls around the base. Kelly's not a chocolate lover (I know, I know...), so this cake is very vanilla. It's a vanilla bean butter cake, filled with our famous Oreo cookie filling, and frosted with vanilla bean swiss meringue buttercream. It is Deeee-lish -- I hear Kelly was a big fan of the Oreo frosting too! I know some kids who have offered to buy my oreo frosting from me by the bowlful. It is that good. I dare you to try it - but you'll have to buy a cake to do so, since I'm not parting with the recipe for it just yet. It's an Enchanted Icing original recipe!
Kelly and her friends had a wonderful time at the party. Here's wishing Kelly a happy birthday and a wonderful year ahead. The best is yet to come!
