    Oops! I Forgot One!

    [dropcap]A[/dropcap] while back, I posted what I thought was a complete listing of all the cakes I had made since we purchased our digital camera. But I was wrong. I missed one. A very important once, actually, because it is the only cake I ever decorated entirely from a design in my head. Every other cake has always been someone else’s idea that I attempted to either duplicate or improve upon. But this one is mine:

    The color isn’t quite accurate. It is more of a pastel shade of purple, but I’m sure you get the idea. This is a three-tiered cake {with raspberry jam filling — yum!} made from two simple box mixes and canned white whipped frosting that I dyed purple for the occasion. The dots, stripes, and outlines were all done using a friend’s decorating set. If someone wanted all the dots to be perfect, they could easily use white chocolate chips and place them upside down. I’m not a perfectionist, so frosting dots are more my style.

    This cake was, incidentally, for a baby girl. The nursery linens were sage and purple, and so, naturally, I used purple for the cake. We used the sage in some of the other decorations just for fun.
