Birthday Time - Basketball Cake

It was my daughters 12th Birthday last month. I cannot believe how much she has grown and matured in the past year. She is growing into a most beautiful, kind, generous, caring and smart young lady.

She decided to have a Bowling Party but her true love at the moment is Basketball so it only made sense that her birthday cake would be Basketball themed. Our family really "do" birthday cakes and despite her party being a rather small gathering, the cake had to match previous years. The bottom tier was vanilla cake iced with purple and white pettinice and the half ball was chocolate cake iced with orange buttercream and licorice. It was such fun to make! We were running a little late for the party so the photos aren't fantastic.

Since moving to Melbourne my daughter has been really lucky to find a wonderful group of girlfriends and I truly hope the friendships she shares with them last her well into High School next year!  The party was a blast and the best compliment came from one of her friends saying, "Mrs B, you have created a piece of art!" The smiles on their faces when we brought it out was enough thanks.


  1. Wow - what an amazing cake - you really are a very talented baker! x

  2. I bet Miss 12 loved it, you did a great job as you always do. Bet it tasted great.
