Who does not like sweets? A birthday cake.

Finally the main thing - a birthday cake and other sweets.
It was my first birthday cake for my son's first birthday. It's a nice coincidence. I chose simple recipe because I knew that a lot of time I spent on decorating cake.
It's a birthday cake gluten-free & dairy-free.

 I inspired by a recipe for a cake that I found here.
5 eggs,
1 cup (170 g) icing sugar, 
3 cup (500 g) potato flour or curn flour (I didn't use),
200 g margarine for baking (dairy-free)
1 tablespoons baking powder
vanilla extract

1. Prepare the cake form.

2. The eggs mix  an electric mixer on a medium speed for 2-3 minutes until light and fluffy. Next add the sugar one tablespoon at a time, beating well after each one.

3. Mix together the flour and baking powder in a bown and sift. Then add the egg and mix until just combined.
4. Melt margarine in a small saucepan, pour the boiling it to the mixture and mix just until combine. 
5. Bake for the first 30 minutes at 160ºC and next 170ºC for about 20-30 minutes. 


I decorated the cake with icing and food coloring.
...and here are the effects of my work :-)

My son loved it.

...and enjoyed.

I made cookies using the same recipe but I used a gluten-free flour for cookies. They were a little bit harder.

...something from the shop

 ...something fresh.
