I did it!!

I finally pulled off a Princess Cake for my princess. Yes I did it! I cant tell you all how happy I am with this li’l achievement of mine. Yes it is no less an achievement for me because I didnt think I could pull this off. Honestly I didnt. Baking a princess cake was a complex task in itself for me so I was pretty much sure I will goof up and I almost did too. But I really really wanted to give this cake a shot, for my daughter who had been insisting on having one for a long long time.

Smitha, I can’t thank you enough for all your help. I know how much I have pestered you in the last one week with my constant mails, smses, and calls. But I’m glad those pesterings bore fruit :). The cake doesnt look half as good as what you made though, but Namnam was all smiles when she saw the cake and that makes me really happy πŸ™‚

Before heading off to join R & Namnam to cut the cake, let me share with you all, a snap of my li’l attempt :).

EDITED TO ADD: Those who want to know how to make a princess cake, head straight to Smitha’s blog post where she has explained the method in detail πŸ™‚

    1. @Count Bratula I didnt sacrifice your girlfriend Barbie..well not fully..only her legs had to be amputated to get her to fit into my cake 😈 Her beautiful face and torso are kept safely for you πŸ˜› πŸ˜›


  1. Deeps, it is so so so very pretty! Much better than mine! I so want a piece of this!

    D: C’mon, Smits..you’re being so modest now..your cake was far better-looking than mine, re πŸ™‚

    I told Kunju that you were baking this today and all she wanted was to fly off to your place πŸ™‚ if I show her this, she is sure to disown me πŸ™‚

    1. Che che, all you can think of is pregnant Barbie, Saksh πŸ™‚ Ken must be committing suicide somewhere πŸ™‚

      And I am with you on that bookshelf! I am so drooling over it too! I would give an arm and a leg for a bookshelf like that!

  3. So cute!!!!! Thank God R isn’t interested in Barbies , all I had to do was mix blue colouring into ready-made-butter-cream and spread it all over a ready-made-rectangular cake and PRETEND it was Thomas the Tank Engine πŸ˜‰

    Very well done, Deeps!!!! I wish we could also see Nammy’s expression!!


  4. W00t! It looks yummilicious just like Smi’s cake. Love you both. Will you be my fraaands?

    D: You want me to give you gaalis in Italian again in response to your fraandship request?? 😈 You’re my friend for life, Solu-polu..love you too πŸ™‚


    1. Know what, Sandhya, Namnam was literally screaming when we asked her to cut the cake. She just didnt want to cut it :). Eventually she did cut though and ate it too πŸ˜€

    1. Awww, thanks so much Nu πŸ™‚ Oh yes, Smits is the sweetest!
      Arre, it was my first attempt, re! Trust me, I had to do a lot of papad-beling to get this one right πŸ˜€


    1. She did, Lakshmi! She had almost given up on me, you know..she had been asking me to make this cake for months and I was so nervous of goofing it up that I was stalling it every time 😦


  6. The cake looks yum! πŸ˜€ And definitely apparently that u took a lot of pains to get it in shape…

    D: Oh yes, a lot of pains did go in getting this cake in shape, Ash πŸ˜€

    Wow! We have like a lot of mommy bakers in blogosphere!


  7. awww .. its awesome .. hey u ned to teach me this one plz … I so want to do it for sis in zurich after her delivery .. πŸ™‚

    namnam must have been in the 7th heaven ….

    errr.. one samll questions what happens to the head n torso after the cake is eaten? ? ? πŸ˜‰

    D: Oh, the head and torso are either re-united with the legs that were taken off to fit into the cake or in my case where the legs could not be re-fixed, find a space in my trash-bin πŸ˜› 😈

  9. Dear Deepti Aunty, I really like Namnam’s birthday cake. And I wish I had the same barbie as you. I wished I lived there and never came back to Leeds – but I can’t. I really want you to come to my house. You can a holiday with me. And you can be with me.


    Deeps – she actually dictated this to me. So I just typed whatever she said – and she said this without any prompting at all! So you guys have to come here now!


    1. Awww, Kunju, how can I turn such a sweet invite down, darling? We will surely come there and we’re all going to have loads of fun. Know what, sweetheart, Namnam remembers you a lot. She & I wish too you were living here. Namnam would have loved to share her Barbie and other toys with you and I would have made as many cakes for you as you want πŸ™‚

      Smits, give my kunjumani loads and loads of kisses and hugs, will you?? Oh, she is a darling! We have got to plan our next meet up soon, Smits πŸ™‚


  10. Wow… This looks like an art piece… If my mom woyld have baked such a cake for me I wonder if I would have ever even cut it… I’ll ask my mom to bake one for me… Just to check if I would actually cut it or not… πŸ˜‰

    D: You’re ‘sounding’ like Namnam. She was screaming when we asked her to cut the cake. She just didnt want to πŸ˜€


  11. You really did it. I really admire how much hardwork it is to be a parent. Wish kids will remember when they grow up…
    Happy parenting and happy belated birthday to your princess.
    Desi Girl

    D: Her b’day was in september, DG. Thank you anyway :). Namnam had been asking me to bake this cake for months, I got around to making it only now πŸ˜€
