Birthday Cakes

Since our daughter and our youngest niece both celebrate their birthdays on May 26th, we decided to have a joint celebration with two cakes!  The birthday cakes were inspired by a wedding cake that we spotted while watching the BBC's Emma months and months ago.  I used two different bundt cake pans:  a Vaulted Cathedral Bundt and a Bundt Quartet PanThe cake recipe was one from King Arthur Flour and I thought that it was just 'meh'...  it used a lot of eggs and butter and perhaps if there had been a lemon glaze added, the flavor would have been better, but it was just too plain to go frostingless (which was what we wanted).  I love how the dusting of powdered sugar sets off the bundt cake patterns and the roses were perfect decorations for these sweet girls!

Those cakes are very nice. You are right about the sugar, it really does set off the patterns. I've been wanting to try a cake like that but worry about it sticking. Has that ever been a problem for you?
