Kaylin's Garden Party

My friend Elly requested a cake for her daughter's 4th birthday.  I made Kaylin her Dora birthday cake last year to celebrate the big THREE, but this year, Kaylin was going to be having a Garden party.  How delightfully splendid!!  Indeed!

Elly requested a chocolate cake with a frosting that is not "too sweet."  Boy do I have the recipe for that!!  It's a cooked buttercream recipe and it is amazing.  It's now my favorite.  Absolutely.  Holy moly.  It's good.  

So this cake was covered with this deliciously smooth, sweet, but not-too-sweet buttercream, and topped with royal icing lilies, roses, primroses, apple blossoms, daffodils and violets.  

 And it's a family tradition that Elly makes and decorates beautiful cut-out cookies for her kids in the shape of their age.  Here are Kaylin's matching number four cookies.  (Aren't they beautiful?!)

I'm so thankful I got to be a part of your special day, Kaylin!  I wish you the happiest 4th birthday!!!
