Today my little niece Jaime turned three. I can't believe she's three already! I made her cakes for her 1st and 2nd birthday and so it seemed tradition to make the 3rd as well. The only request was that it was pink - no problem there!

Happy Birthday Jaime

Jaime's birthday cake

This is the recipe I used for a simple sponge cake. It was delicious, very moist and only three eggs needed. It was really simple to make, you honestly couldn't go wrong with it. I just changed it to decorate it with buttercream instead of fresh cream.

We had a great day. I love being an Auntie. I also have a little nephew called Finnegan who was born in June. My brother and his wife live in Canada so I have to wait until Christmas to see him but I can't wait! Jaime had a wonderful day.

I got Jaime the sparkly dragon, I kind of wanted to keep it! And the helmet, I was impressed with my new pink helmet for roller derby but that unicorn one is amazing! Hope you enjoyed reading, and give the cake a go!

  21. oh my gosh you are a bloody amazing aunt! my niece is about the same age and i know she would have LOVED a pink dragon and a glittery pink birthday cake for her birthday! so so cute, i think i might take note and attempt to bake next year - except i seem to have a growing collection of nieces and nephews im not sure it would be feasible. mmm maybe ill just stick to eating cake instead!
