Whipped cream pie

Whipped cream pie

For Kiki’s first birthday party I thought I bake the cake that we always had on my childhood birthday parties, an old school Dutch slagroom taart or whipped cream pie. This cake is utterly delicious and I really wanted to bake one as I never tried to make one from scratch myself. I found a great recipe on the Albert Heijn website (find the original recipe in Dutch here) and had a go for Kiki’s pre birthday party. (Yes the girl is fancy, she had two parties, one in Holland and one in the UK ) The cake was soooo tasty I had to make it again for her real birthday.

After posting a picture of the cake on my Instagram I got a few recipe requests so I translated the recipe, added my small changes and photographed it so all of you can make this amazing whipped cream cake yourselves! The cake looks rich with all that whipped cream but it is in fact very light and the fruit gives it a fresh note. What I probably likes best is that it really is a blank canvas to decorate. I kept it simple with a few cream rosettes, colourful sprinkles, a washi tape cake banner and some adorable party hat topped cake topper animals from Hema. The cake banner is super easy to make yourself, there is a tutorial on my Instagram highlights.

The cake stand is an Ikea cup and plate I glued together find this old tutorial from me here. I made several for my sisters wedding cakes (I baked the cake too) I kept this pink one as a memento. The white cake plate is an old Zara home one.

Ironically Kiki’s couldn’t eat this cake herself as it is full of diary and sugar so she had an apple and banana baby cup cake :D

Tempted to give this cake a go yourself? Would love to see your results!

No whipped cream pie for the babies though they had sugar and diary free cupcakes
