Happy Birthday Julia!

Confetti Cake

One thing I’ve learnt since entering the ‘real world’ i.e. work place, is that the people you work with can really have a huge effect on the way you view ‘work’.
Since working at the company I am at, I’ve been fortunate enough to work with so many wonderful people, that many of them have actually now become my friends – people that I would hang out with on the weekends, go to the movies with, or have the occasional boogie with.

I’ve even been lucky enough to befriend somebody so awesome that I now call her my work BFF 🙂  She’s so cool I decided to bake her a cake for her birthday last weekend.

Confetti Cake

The cake itself is made up of the same batter I used for the “Confetti Cupcakes” and iced with the White Chocolate Frosting. I used a 1M Wilton Open Star Tip to pipe the roses (may look tres difficile but I can assure you it really isn’t 🙂 )

I then decorated the roses with some edible pink sugar balls that I got from Coles.

And then to customize the cake for Jules, I melted some dark chocolate, piped some words onto baking paper, popped it into the freezer for half an hour, and placed it on top of the cake. Then I spent the next hour thinking of transportation methods. I settled for the steamer pot and lid. It was tough, but the cake and I made it safely and in one piece to work the next day. Huzzah!

Happy Birthday Jules 🙂
