Star Cake

I made a simple small cake for Grandpa Dewey's birthday. I was going to make a monkey because he's famous for making our girls laugh with monkey noises, but I think the filling is too soft to hold up such a heavy figure. Plus, I have two cakes to make this week and I'm sure I'll get enough of making figures (one of which will have a monkey)! White cake with pistachio cream filling covered and decorated with fondant.
Pistachio Cream Filling
1 pint heavy whipping cream
1/4 c sugar
3 tablespoons pisatchio pudding mix
Whip the cream until soft peaks form. With the mixer on low, gradually add the sugar. Once added, turn the speed up to high and whip until stiff peaks form. Fold in pudding mix. Use immediately, or store in the refrigerator in an airtight container.



  1. I wish I could have a slice! It looks adorable! Happy Birthday to Grandpa.

  2. Great job, as usual! Can't wait to see the other cakes!
