Minimalistic Birthday Cake

Minimalistic Birthday Cake A cozy and vintage presentation of the classic chocolate birthday cake, with a minimalistic design, filled with fresh whipped cream and added some crunchy pearls. I guess it’s evident that I was a bit timid with the chocolate ganache coating as I was aiming to get the natural drip decor. As always, practice makes perfect. This cake had to be delivered to an event so I couldn’t reveal the cross section this time 😌 . . #bakingaesthetics #baketok #cozybaking #baking #fypシ #bakingvlog #bakingtiktok #bakingvideo #birthdaycake #cakesoftiktok #cottagecoreaesthetic

This birthday cake was made for a 12-year-old kid who celebrated his birthday, and it sure caught the attention of many people that evening. I guess it could’ve been due to the fact that it is a chocolate cake, with colorful writing, and what seem to be colorful sprinkles around the sides of the cake (which are actually made of whipped cream mixed with some food coloring). However, the flavors were also simple yet wonderful. Just what kids are looking for in a cake.
