Cake of the month
We’re always coming up with new custom designs for all cake occasions, whether it’s for weddings, birthdays, baby showers, etc, but our favourite new design at the moment, in the Harry Batten Bakery, is this little digger cake we did for a 2 years olds birthday a few weeks ago.
The flavour was a simple vanilla sponge with vanilla Italian meringue buttercream, this is the flavour we usually suggest for children’s parties as it’s not too rich and is always a crowd pleaser. We covered the outside of the cake in chocolate buttercream, crushed some of our triple chocolate cookies over the top and around the base to make it look extra outdoorsy.
The highlight of the cake is the yellow digger we made from icing, we airbrushed it with yellow and orange food colouring to give it some depth and then piped on some details in silver.
The trees were also made of icing and had details piped on like the digger, then airbrushed with some different shades of green food colouring to give it some additional texture
We loved making this digger themed children’s birthday cake and look forward to doing some more cakes in the same style.
