Happy Day Confetti Cake
I don’t actually do birthday, because I feel like that I don’t need birthday to do special things and also in another hand I want to stay far away from a “getting older” reminder (LOL), but anyhow today is literally my birthday.
My son’s birthday is coming up up after 2 weeks, but on that week his school is already “fully booked” for so many events, so I decided to bring the cake today to the school. I want just to keep it simple with small gestures (“ONLY” giving cake and candy to his friends). I think he will later cherish the moment when we “made” the cake together more than if I had make for him an extravagant birthday party.
Now go back to the cake, even though I joined the Daring Bakers after the Dorie’s Perfect Party Cake challenge, but I always thought about that I would make it in one day. That day then was yesterday, made the recipe only in two layers with almond flavor, vanilla buttercream, instead of jam I used caramel syrup, and finished off with buttercream and dark chocolate glazed (with extra liquorice on top).
