I honestly can't stop smiling ( over & over again! ) each time I thought of this cake :-) Yes, so many sweet memories was made by just this one birthday cake...Truth be told, this cake was one of the fun & exciting cake I've made so far...Not only because of the cake, but because of whom I'm making it for :-)
This cake was requested by none other than my dear, dear friend and my #1 fan, Ms. Suraya :-) Suraya wanted to make a special cake for one of her nieces, Syaima, who's celebrating her 2nd birthday. If I remember well, Suraya actually put in her cake request a month before Syaima's birthday and all she said to me was, "Syaima loves pink colour, the cartoon character Barney, Cinderella, Snow White and Upin & Ipin ( a Malaysian made animated cartoon characters )...The rest, I'll leave it up to you"....I remembered thinking 'uh-ohhhhhhh' :-P Yup! I was so worried about coming up with the best looking cake for cutie pie Syaima *pressured!*
After much to & fro excited phone calls & mobile messages from Suraya ( Oh yes! Syaima's aunt was super excited about the cake as well...he..he...), both of us finally settled for a Rainbow Vanilla Cake with Vanilla Buttercream with edible & fondant decorations :-)

My Very 1st Try At Making Fondant Teddy Bear...My Honey Bunny Said

Isn't That The Cutest Face To See On A Cake? :-P
It was super fun making this cake as not only did I enjoy every moment chatting away on my mobile with Suraya, I was also introduced to Suraya's other family members :-) I especially loved it when I get to share & see Syaima's baby photo. She's one cute baby & still is :-)
Here are some of the fun fact about the cake that I'll forever cherished, thanks to Suraya's feedback & excited smses she has sent to me :-)
- Guess who never left the cake from the moment the cake was collected & even became a 'guard', guarding the cake ever so tightly that others are denied access to come near the cake?...Cutie pie Syaima! :-P
