In my previous post I started the baking season with Custard Filled Pie with Plum Toppingbut I forgot to mention that September also is the beginning of the cake baking season as well. From now until January every month, sometimes even twice a month someone from my nearest family has a birthday - niece, nephews, husband, mother-in-law, myself, sister and brother-in-law. Unfortunately, the members of my family live in Bulgaria, so we don't have the chance to celebrate their birthdays together. I was thinking that if we were all at the same place there will be a birthday almost every month of the year, except February, May, June and August.

Well, whether we like it or not fall is quickly approaching. Even if it is clear to everyone that after fall comes winter there are a lot of things to love about the season...like the abundance of fruits and vegetables, happily grown under the summer sun, filled with sweet and aromatic juices, and plenty of vitamins. I know, nowadays it is not difficult to find everything all year round, but the taste is not the same. You can not compare it at all! Another positive point is that the temperatures started to drop which makes it perfect time for bakers like me. After the hot and humid summer I couldn't wait longer to resume all the baking and cooking, and to fill the house with the smell of home baked goodies.
And for the official start of my baking season I chose something well known and very appropriate for the season - Custard Filled Pie with Plum Topping !

Hi Everyone, I haven't forgotten about my blog, but the last few weeks I wasn't feeling like writing and I was busy with other things. Finally I managed to make myself sit on the computer and show you what I made for my niece Nicole birthday party. For her second birthday I made a Rainbow Cake, which was totally my idea, but now she is 3 years old and she is big enough to have her preferences for the cake. When I asked her what kind of cake she wants, the answer was simple and clear " I want a cake with princess and a bird ".
I'm not very good at modeling faces and bodies, so I was a worried how the princess will turn out, but at the end it wasn't so bad...My niece and her little guests were very happy with the result and that's the most important thing!
