Yesterday was my first birthday I had to bake my own cake! Usually my mom does that for me, but she is in Germany, so that wouldn't work ;)
So I decided I want to go lazy on it and not do too much on my special day and went for a cake box mix. But as always, it just wasn't good enough for me. I wanted a filling! Lucky me just bought some super yummy apple pie pudding that works just fine for a filling.
I also don't like my frosting super sweet so I went for a whipped cream vanilla frosting.
Now I only had to turn this cake into a girly cake. Pink sprinkles and a sheet of paper did the job, but I still wasn't satisfied, so I made (my first ever) fondant (a butter cream one). I was surprised how easy this fondant was to work with. I had absolutely no problems rolling and cutting it out! All the hours I watched cake boss, finally paid back haha.
Well, in the end I had the best birthday cake I've ever had and will for sure make all my future birthday cakes myself :)
