Jessi is officially 9 as of yesterday.
I made a polka dot cake which I happened to see on pinterest a few weeks ago … lucky I was able to talk Jessi out of the pretty pink poodle cake she had spotted in a magazine … that just wouldn’t fit with the ‘rainbow’ colourful theme that was forming in my head.
So first I had to make colourful cake pop ball thingys using a borrowed cake pop tin which was actually silicon and didn’t work quite as well as I imagine a tin one would … being flexible is not such a good thing in this case. Anyway it worked well enough for what I needed. Once the balls were formed I then placed them in a round cake tin and added more white cake mix and baked again like a regular cake.
I made 3 cakes the same and layered them together … that top one went a bit hill shaped on top so I had to slice some off … but at least I could see the polka dot effect was there.
Then all I had to do was slap on some white icing and cover it in lollies … easy.
And inside it looked something like this …
Impressive enough for 9 year olds anyway.
