I could say this is my 2nd cake order which I received very well before from one of my friend..say around 11 months back when baby kannan was hardly a month. From then it was always in my mind how to make his cake special. I received the color theme and flavor preference 2 months back. And there was a request to place the figurine of baby Krishna. 😊
Till the previous day evening I had no clue what design I should make. Thought of keeping the frangipani flowers some where in the cake as it is said to be Lord Krishna’s favorite flower. And then made the madkas (earthen pots) resembling the number one, as it is Kannan’s first birthday. 😊
Next challenge was the cake flavor. My dear friend needs the cake in pistachio flavor. Now that was something which put me out from my comfort zone. Though it gave me 2 sleepless nights, I made it..
Coincidence!!!! As the Birthday celebrations was planned for the Janmastami day evening, I got a chance to put all these together on that blessed day morning… Lucky me!!! 😇
Each tier of this 10 inch tall cake has 4 layers each of pistachio cake. The filling and frosting is meringue butter cream
