Pretty Pastel Flower Birthday Cake ♥

Being a flower lover, I just had to have a flower themed birthday cake for my 30th birthday, didn't I?

I showed Jacek some cake designs that I liked, sourced from Pinterest of course, and this is what the cake maker came up with. I loved it, it was so pretty!

The cake itself was lemon sponge, with lemon buttercream to ice it. It was delicious and I think it might actually be quite an easy cake to recreate myself - I'm already thinking of an Easter/spring twist to give to the decoration.

The pastel coloured flowers were made of fondant icing and one of the flowers was painted with edible glitter too - so pretty!

The cake was so lovely that I had to post about it. It was a lovely addition to my 30th birthday celebrations and I want to remember it. I used to post all the boys' birthday cakes here on the blog too and I miss how much this space on the internet used to be a virtual scrapbook of sorts for us as a family. I have to bring it back to that.

If you're a flower lover like me - evident from how often flowers feature in my photography and on my social media, then this cake is a great option for a birthday or party, or even if you want to recreate it yourself - which I'm going to try and do in time for Easter.

Jacek also bought me flowers which matched the colours of the cake, so I had to get a few snaps of them all together. Love a bit of colour coordination! It was so thoughtful of him. The loveliest pretty pastel flower birthday cake I could have asked for.
