Flamingo Cake ... french vanilla w/buttercream icing

My gf bday was Christmas Day she loves flamingos ... so I made her bday cake.

 

This is a french vanilla w/raspberry filling - whipped buttercream icing.  The drip didn't work out to well😉..(.I stole the idea from a cake I saw in WM bakery section)

 

she said "next year we need a bigger cake!" lol it's only a 6" size. Guess they enjoyed it!  I picked the glass cake dish up at a estate sale and gave to her as a gift.

Cute cake and sounds so good.  All the pictures of goodies are pure torture.  I guess hubby must be okay today?

This was baked Christmas Eve he's in bed no later than 8:30!!

 

Yes, he is feeling a little better in fact he asked me to make him chocolate chip cookies or sugar cookies.  A very unusual request as he rarely eats sweets but I didn't bake for us this year!

 

I am a night owl and bake or clean during the night sometimes into the wee hours of the morning😉

 

He's following drs orders and being a good patient.  Only thing he sleeps most the day which is good in a way.  The COPD symptoms have flaired up from the pneumonia.  He's exhausted from doing the slightest thing.☹️

That is the cutest cake!  What a great idea to pick up a cake plate at an estate sale and give it to her as part of your gift.

What a cute cake!  How nice of you do to that for your friend.  The vanilla cake with raspberry filling sounds devine.  HINT:  My birthday is in August and I love ladybugs. 🐞  😀

I'd love to be her neighbor too, she's such a kind and creative spirit!

 

(Also that way I could 'jack' that delicious looking/sounding cake, LOL!)

Very pretty.  The blue around the edge reminds me of ocean waves.  You would never know you had an issue trying to do a drip.Smiley Happy

 I'll be happy to deliver you a ladybug cake for your bday!

 

I'll be up in PA if you're close - baking these cakes keeps my creative side going and I am enjoying picking up glass cake plates for the bday girl!

 

next bday is January - so have to come up with a idea!  Maybe something French motif as this gf loves Paris.

 

Happy New Year!!!
