Bratz Birthday cake
This is the cake I made for my niece's 5th birthday. She is all into Bratz this year so I looked up some pictures on a colouring website and we chose one for her cake. I did a run out of the picture and also one of her name in a Bratz style font. I wanted to include the little stars around the 'halo' so made more stars of different colours and sizes to spread around the cake. The join between cake and board is covered with some rope icing and a sparkly star stuck to each corner to finish it off neatly. The stars and number five on wires I made from Mexican paste and stuck them into a posy pick within a larger star. The cake itself is a 10" x 12" sponge with jam and butter cream layers. This is only the second time I have used run outs on a cake but I am always relieved when they stay in one piece ! I can't wait to see her face when she sees it.
