Pound Cakes with Spaghetti Butter cream Icing

19 Sep

As we know, Birthday is a special occasion which is normally celebrated once in a year. Some of them are really lucky and gifted to do it more than time in a single year. Riya is one of those luckiest and celebrated her 5th Birthday 3 times. Though it took more time for preparation, she did enjoy this way with few friends at a time. The First one,  we invited few of her close Kindergarten friends to home and we did celebrate with Princess castle cake. The Second one she did celebrate in her Kindergarten itself with all the children, as this is a custom in her Kindergarten. The third celebration was again at home we did invite children from our family friends and celebrated with a surprise Cake which will be posted next.

So the last whole week is a fun filled week for her. As a part of celebration in her Kindergarten,  Riya has to sponsor some of food item to her friends. So to impress little friends of Riya, I ended up in making this beautiful little piece of cake decorated with Butter cream icing and sugar sprinkles. To be honest it was very easy and effortless to make this spaghetti decoration. I also did get the feedback from her when she was back from  school saying, children did enjoy, some girls did pick up pink colors, some boys did pick blue color and  others liked green and yellow. Together with this they did enjoy store bought Ice creams pops.

I did name it as Spaghetti Butter cream icing as I did remember of Spaghettice cream when making this. Spahettieis is one of those favorite ice creams which is sold in Ice cream parlor and Restaurants here.  Of course, for German Children including Riya, one of the top most favorite food among the list is Spaghetti with Tomato sauce, Bologenese sauce and so on.

Here is the recipe
