Our little friend was 8 this year and requested a coconut layer cake with decorations to surprise her. The whole family is mad on coconut cake, so it could be nothing else but that!
I decided to keep it pretty, girly and fresh-looking, so a pink dotty ribbon was the starting point, along with her name and age in pink. Lots of different coloured pastel blossoms and mini blossoms were dotted over the top and sides and it was all finished with a sprinkle of pale pink glitter.
She was by all accounts delighted with it and it was devoured in record time!
This kind of simple decoration would also look really nice at a casual christening, a baby shower or a baby’s birthday.
