Vanilla Number Cake With Passionfruit Buttercream

July 27, 2022 1 min read

I love making number cakes!  I love how easy they are to personalise for each birthday and that everything can be made in advance and put together the night before or even on the day of the event.  Sometimes I will bake my cakes in advance and freeze them until I'm ready to cut out the number cakes.


All of my number templates will fit within a 12" square cake tin which is what I have used below to bake 2 vanilla cakes.  The recipe is at the bottom of this page.

Number 6 Baking Stencil Ready To Cut Out Number Six Cake

Ensuring your cake is well chilled, carefully cut around your chosen number template.

I made passionfruit flavoured swiss meringue buttercream by mixing some freh passionfruit juice with swiss meringue buttercream.  The recipe is below.  The colour of the icing is just from the passionfruit which worked out beautifully for a Bluey theme.


For decorations on this Bluey themed cake I used fondant topped cookies, mini chocolate blocks (made with my silicone mini chocolate block mould), meringues and sprinkles.  As well as my daughters little Bluey toys - thoroughly washed beforehand of course! 


Here is the finished product!  I'm a home baker that only makes cakes for my family so if I can do this - you definitely can too!  

Happy baking!
