Girls Birthday Cake / Pink Gold Cake / 2 tier Celebration Cake

How to make an easy girls birthday cake? A simple recipe with step by step picture instructions. Also all links from where I bought each and every thing I have used in this cake.

This is a pink gold cake in vanilla flavour buttercream and Genoise sponge. I made this for my daughter’s 12th Birthday. I choose pink and gold combination but you can also make it in blue, purple, yellow or any other colours of your choice. You can also use silver instead of gold.

I baked a 6 inch Genoise cake for first tier and a dummy 4 inch cake for top tier. Why I used dummy cake for top tier? Because this cake I made for my daughter’s birthday and there were not too many guests coming so we didn’t need a lot of cake. But you can bake a 4 inch genoise with same recipe and use that.

Put the 2nd layer on top and cover it with a thin layer of buttercream. This is our crumb coat. Keep this in fridge for 15 minutes so that the buttercream will set on it and it will be easy later to cover it with 2nd layer of buttercream.
