I made this cake for a young girl who’s birthday falls right after the holidays…must be hard to make a color statement with all that red and green.
So this adorable 14-yr-old asked for her birthday cake to be purple. That’s it. Purple. And chocolate.
Surprisingly easy to please for a teenager, huh?!
Her mom threw in a few dozen cookies for fun…
The cake is a 9″ chocolate mocha cake with chocolate mousse filling and iced with vanilla-bean buttercream.The pics turned out more pink-looking, but the icing color was a mix of Americolor royal purple and electric purple. I added the green and blue sequin/sprinkle mix to add some contrast.
The name plaque, number, and stars are all made from homemade marshmallow fondant.
Loved this one, so much freedom…
Hope you had a great birthday, Maddie! I really enjoyed making your purple cake and cookies!
