My little girl turned 3 today!!! I just can't believe it.... *phew*.... Where is time flying to!! My search for her cake started few months back. I wanted to bake something special for her. I had a few criteria in my mind. I needed a strawberry cake (my gal's favorite fruit); a pink cake (her favorite color) and a 3 layer cake (as it was her 3rd b'day). My search landed up me in Sweetapolita.... I usually go for cakes that pleases my eyes...... And every cake in Sweetapolita pleased my eyes.... *winks*...... Next, I checked out the ingredients of each cake and finally landed upon the Neapolitan Cake..... It had everything that I was looking for - a strawberry cake (for the b'day girl), a chocolate cake (for the son and hubby), a vanilla cake (for the blogger) and of course it's a 3 layer cake......
However, I followed the recipe on Annie's Eats. So, to get the full recipe hop on to her Neapolitan Cake.
The frosting used is Swiss Meringue Strawberry Buttercream from Sweetapolita.
My 3 days of work, calculations, re-works, texting my friend in Dubai for tips, skipping out my regular activities, everything was paid off when I got what I wanted!!! In fact my daughter wanted to cut it the minute I finished the frosting, but somehow I managed to divert her attention....Kids!!
