Whilst discussing a relative’s 18th birthday cake, my God-daughter, Summer, asked if I would make her birthday cake.” Of course,” I responded, “what kind of cake would you like?”

“I’d like a princess cake Auntie Julie,” at which point her Mum added ” it needs to feed 30″. “Err, ok” I replied nervously.

I had seen other similar cakes which had been made using a Tiffin tin, but was sure that wasn’t going to be enough, so came up with idea of stacking it on top of a Bundt tin. The cake mix is a sponge cake. I split the cone shaped cake into 3 layers, and the bundt into 2 layers, filling them both with raspberry jam and butter cream. I used 3 shades of pink icing to create the dress with glitter and flowers for detail.

My God-daughter was over the moon with the end result. Not sure what I will do for her 6th birthday!
