|Paint Splash Topper Cake for Melina (Splat's inspired by Anne Heap)|
|Melina's Paint Palette Cupcakes|
What a fabulous time had by all at Melina's 11th Birthday Party yesterday held at Stay and Clay in Port Washington!
Melina...my wonderful granddaughter turned 11! Of course Yiayia Malia simply could not let a birthday go without making something special!
...A vanilla butter cake/cupcakes infused with a strawberry simple syrup and filled with the freshest and most scrumptious strawberries and passion fruit Italian Meringue Buttercream. Now you would think that an 11 year old would want American Buttercream....but not Melina! She asked specifically that her cake be filled with IMBC cuz "Yiayia! you make it so light and fluffy!!!" Gotta love it!
Melina...by the way is a very talented and artsy young lady! Not that she's my granddaughter mind you...but she is pretty good with a brush and paint AND plays clarinet! Seems like it runs in the family....All of my grandbabies are into the arts in some way. Katie plays piano...and bakes, Costa plays trombone and loves to dabble in cakes as well!!
HAPPY 11TH BIRTHDAY!
I hope you had a fabulous day!
Oh lest I forget to give credit where credit is due...The topper cake for Melina's Paint Palette Cupcake Tower was inspired by Anne Heap, of New Jersey. She had done a three tiered paint splat cake...which was totally cool. Thank you for the inspiration Anne.
