Shhh... Zara's Birthday Cake


Today was spent baking my friend's surprise birthday cake for her 20th on Saturday!
She is obsessed with the colour turquoise so I have tried to take this on board. I previously, maybe around 3 years ago now, created a giant cupcake for her birthday in this colour and if I can I'll try and find a photo to compare! 
I find these cakes such a hassle to make however I am happier with this cake then my birthday cake I baked a few weeks back. The candy buttons worked in my favour as did the cake. I know it could be neater but nothings perfect in life :) 

It is filled with a Victoria sponge with vanilla buttercream and apricot jam.

Hope you like!
