Leopard Sweet Sixteen

| Cakes for Girls, Sweet Sixteen

Oh to be young agian… This cake was made for Kelly, whose family and friends threw a surprise party for her to celebrate her 16th birthday.  She certainly was surprised!!  What a lucky girl to be surrounded with those she loves on her birthday, and what a nice mom and family to organize the whole thing for her.

Kelly’s mother requested a 20-25 serving cake decorated with an animal print and “something pink”.  This design is what I came up with and Kelly’s mom approved – a big pink bow on a hand-painted leopard print cake, with pink pearls around the base.  Kelly’s not a chocolate lover (I know, I know…), so this cake is very vanilla.  It’s a vanilla bean butter cake, filled with our famous Oreo cookie filling, and frosted with vanilla bean swiss meringue buttercream.  It is Deeee-lish — I hear Kelly was a big fan of the Oreo frosting too!  I know some kids who have offered to buy my oreo frosting from me by the bowlful.  It is that good.  I dare you to try it – but you’ll have to buy a cake to do so, since I’m not parting with the recipe for it just yet.  It’s an Enchanted Icing original recipe!

Kelly and her friends had a wonderful time at the party. Here’s wishing Kelly a happy birthday and a wonderful year ahead.  The best is yet to come!
