I was very flattered when my friend Leslie’s daughter said that she would like me to make her a cake for her birthday party, but a bit worried when I heard it was a “water walkers” party! Water walkers are like giant hamster balls on water and I was struggling to imagine how to make that cake…
Luckily for me we managed to agree on a water theme but using dolphins rather than hamsters. And no balls.
I found a dolphin cutter and some bright blue icing and used some white and blue stars as an accent against a sea blue background. The dolphins’ eyes are silver balls stuck on with icing and added a tiny bit of bling. The cake itself was a three layer vanilla sponge sandwiched with vanilla buttercream.
The design lent itself perfectly to having Antonia’s name in white on the cake, along with her age in blue. I put stars around the base of the cake but left the front section clear so that Antonia could put her ten candles there.
Happy 10th Birthday Antonia!
