I love to try out new (to me) cakes. I had to borrow the half ball pan from a cake friend of mine. It's a good thing that she's so generous with her equipment or I might have had to try and carve the round myself and that may have been a bit messy.
I was excited to make this cake. I wanted practice and more ideas for a girly first birthday cake. Although I do admit that I am getting way ahead of myself. My own daughter's birthday is not until June!!
