I love birthdays! Love love them. I love planning for them and finding ways to make people feel special on their days. Usually that involves baking special treats, and then watching their faces light up when I give them to them.
One of my good friend and classmate’s birthdays was over spring break so we won’t be together to celebrate. So I knew I had to do something really special for her before we left. When she was least expecting it.
This same friend is in love with all things pink.
So when it came time to make her birthday cake I knew exactly what I was going to do. I used my all time favorite cake recipe (aka – our wedding cake) with raspberry mousse and white chocolate buttercream. And I made a lot of it because it had to feed a lot of people. 3 batches of cake made enough for a 3-layered 10 inch cake, a 2-layered 6 inch cake, and a dozen cupcakes.

I frosted it using this method and it turned out great. It was fairly simple to do, just a little time consuming. Totally worth it!
