Its My Girl's 6th Birthday!

"I'm very happy today, mummy!".....My girl told me last nigt after her birthday party..:) Most of all it was because the gifts and friends that came to her party..;p Ooh, and the clown! That really entertained them..haha!
I did cook and prepare the rest of the deco myself past few years for my girl's party but not this year. We called for cater and I just concentrate on the cake. Yea..the cake, which took me 9 hours to complete!!.haha! I'm not good at the fondant or gum paste but because my girl has been asking for it months ago and she even choose the color and decorations herself, so I have no choice! Stress myself out for it and luckily my youngest sis (littlekitchen) was here to help, or else.....;p A BIG "thank you" to her!!

After all the baking, frosting, moulding and's the cake!

She loves it! ...:) Especially the colour...PINK! Its so pink actually, but its the favourite colour for all girls i think..heehee..:)

Some small Strawberry cupcakes for the wordings, but those cupcakes was from those cupcakes mix pack which I got from the bakery store . Just mixed everything in the mixer and bake, that's all....haha! No time for the rest, so I need a fast one. Anyway, I did add some fresh strawberries in the batter.

All the letters, small flowers and windows for the castle later...moulded and let dry.

The cake's flavour?...Yum yum! Its the butter lemon cake I love from Sonia (Nasi lemak Lover).
The cake was built up with 3 cakes in total, which the middle one was just a plain butter cake with some lemon rind.

Its alittle rough here..heehee! But overall it was still acceptable..haha!

At the end of the decoration, we decided to just stick the plastic door on the cake instead of fondant, ....yeah, we are really tired at that time..;p So the whole cake, the door was really neat..haha!

I just can't wait to display it once after done, you know why? I'm so worried that the pillars will collapse..haha!
