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!
