It's a good thing I have a 4-year old daughter to help me with these cakes sometimes. She knew exactly what "Ni Hao Kai Lan" was all about. But when I found some clip art on the Internet with the characters holding the dragon, I thought that would make a cool cake. Turns out I was right! This turned out so fun and colorful, and I love the way the characters a really came to life with my edible markers. The cake was vanilla with strawberry filling on top, and red velvet with cream cheese icing on bottom. The whole cake got covered with a turquoise blue fondant, and fondant details with a red accent color. I also made cookies and mini trifles to create a little dessert buffet for this party. It was so adorable! And I always know that I have a successful design when my daughter announces "this is the cake that I want for MY birthday!" Success.
