How would you decorate a cake for a six year old who can't decide what he likes? Here's what I did:
I made a "6" cake! I used two round pans for the bottom and a heart pan, cut in two and trimmed to make this 2-layer cake. I filled it with lemon curd (think lemon pie filling) and iced it with buttercream.
Here's what the first filled layer looked like:
I should have used a different color than purple as an accent - it might be too "girly" for him. Or I could have made the cake darker blue but it will still taste the same!
