Happy Friday, friends! I wanted to pop in and add a little sparkle to your weekend with my latest cake. This pink and purple striped cake was so much fun to make and incredibly hard to part with! I’m not big on letting the sparkles go…
This was a birthday cake I recently created and I must admit, I knew from the beginning I was never going to want to part with it. I was going on pink, purple, girly and sparkles – music to my ears! The cake itself was chocolate with a cookies and cream filling, all wrapped in my signature vanilla buttercream. It’s my favorite cake and it’s one of those cakes that everyone loves. Even people who say they’re not into chocolate (um, how do people like that even exist?!) love this cake! Magic, maybe?
The outside was done in pink, white and purple buttercream stripes and I piped ombre rosettes all along the border to tie it all together.
It looked good, but it needed a pop, which is when I remembered the little pink shimmery candies I picked up a few weeks ago! Impulse buy to the rescue! I whipped up a little princess sprinkle mix and we were in business! A little sparkle sprinkled over the top and ta-da, the princess cake was ready to go!
Happy to report the birthday girl was delighted with her cake and all I know is, if this was my birthday cake when I was 10, I would have collapsed! Let’s be serious, if this was my birthday cake now, I’d probably collapse!
Thanks so much for reading, guys! Big thanks for all your feedback on my how-to fill a piping bag video too! I’m SO happy you guys found it helpful and there’s more videos coming your way soon – promise! By the way, is this striped technique something you’d like to see a tutorial on?
Stay tuned on Instagram for even more cakes and remember to tag me and use the #ButtercreamBlondie hashtag so I can see your bakes!
