This weekend we got to celebrate our sons' buddy, Dany, who turned six years old. Dany loves Pokémon, so I made him a cake with his favorite character, Pikachu. (That's the yellow little creature, for all of you who don't know.)
It's funny, I talked to some parents at the party, and we realized we know nothing about Pokémon, even though it was a big hit in the late 1990's. We do, however, remember the Tamagotchi. We all had key chains with our own little pet that we had to feed, put down for naps, and potty train. Basically, we all unknowingly got ready for parenthood!
Instead of a regular vanilla cake, I tried a new recipe for a buttermilk cake from The Sweetapolita Bakebook, and I really liked it. I filled the cake with a strawberry mousse and covered it with a vanilla bean buttercream and fondant. The number six and Pikachu were made out of fondant as well.
Happy Birthday once again, Dany!
I helgen firade vi pojkarnas kompis, Dany, som fyllde sex år. Han älskar Pokémon och speciellt Pikachu, så jag gjorde en Pokémoninspirerad tårta till honom. Tårtan hade buttermilkbottnar (ungefär som filmjölk och kärnmjölk) och var fylld med jordgubbsmousse och täckt med vaniljsmörkräm och fondant. Figurerna var även gjorda med fondant.
