Well here it is! Cake is a box cake mix, and mousseline frosting. I was a little annoyed at the mousseline.I dontknow what happened but it didnt whip nice (kind of turned chunky) and made it hard to pipe.  Then, somehow WATER got into the mousseline?? Which caused the foodcoloring to almost drip out;. It was very weird, but all in all, im happy with it

Sweetness, when I saw the title ‘Baby’s first birthday’ I immediately thought it might be your post and it is so nice to see the cake you made for your baby, I hope your present pregnancy goes well and we can look forward to seeing another cake soon.  Good luck! grin

That is a beautiful cake SweetNess!  The colors are so lovely and makes me think of a handmade quilt.  Your little one is lucky to have a mommy like you.

By the way,  the mousseline looks just fine to me.

Really pretty!  It reminds me of a quilt, also—of course, a baby quilt!  It all goes together so nicely, the colors, the shapes, the edge piping, the flowers. I really like the flowers!  Sorry the mousseline fussed at you—it certainly came out beautifully—and I’ll bet your little one-year-old looked very cute with it on her little fingers!!

Thanks. So i had 3 pieces left (because i told some people they couldnt eat cake becuase i was afraid i was gonna run out lol) but i didnt!  THen, since i didnt want the cake, i put it in the freezer. Then i realized i ALREADY froze the mousseline…

I think it wil be fine, what to you think??

So lovely, the quilted pattern is great. 

Mousseline is fine frozen, thawed, whipped, and frozen again.  Have done it many times with bits of leftover buttercream, and never had any problem.

Not sure about the lumpiness, unless maybe it was too cold and curdled a little?

i shouldnt say lumpy….it just wasnt as soft and smooth as it was when i first made it. I had it on the counter all night to thaw and it sat out most of the day before i used it, so it DEFINATELY was thawed.
