As I was lurking on craftster yesterday, I couldn't find any birthday cakes that had a number 1 on top-to inspire me for the cake I had to make- something cute and blue for a simple round cake. So I made this in the end and I hope it could be an inspiration for somebody else. Here it is!

Sorry, I haven't got any action pics yet...
Thanks a lot for checking it out!

Simplistically beautiful! I will definately keep something like this in mind the next time I bake a cake  Smiley
Is the white top fondant as well (I'm assuming the blue dots are fondant) or is it regular icing?

I'm your fool

Well, I live somewhere, where I can't get packed icing or fondant... So I made them using the same technique I use for little sculptured animals, flowers, etc. I mix powdered sugar, egg whites and a few drops of lemon juice (not too much, just a FEW drops) and i mix it until I get kind of a clay consistency, so I can sculpt with it. This time I made little bals which I then squished into small circles. Then I put it in the oven (If I have time, I just leave it out during the night so they dry) to 50C with ventilation for about half an hour. Well, on the outside there's just regular whipped cream, on top (the flat surface on top) it's just the filling I used on the inside between the layers. It's actually kind of a cheesecake with lemon zest, raspberries and blueberries. I left out the fruit for the layer on top. And It's all made from scratch-nothing pre-made.
Uff, I didn't think I had so much to say  Grin

Looks beautiful. Simple but elegant.  Love the shades of blue.  Great explanation on how you did everything.  Thank you.  Had to laugh about your "Uff"  sounds like something my daughter would say. lol.  Glad that you did write it all though. It's a big help to lots of people.  I don't have access to premade either so this type of post really helps.

So simple. I really love it. Normally I'm not much into birthday cakes that looks like something but this is just beautiful. And I can imagine a 1 yr old would actually be able to enjoy it as not too much is going on Smiley
