My boy's five-year-old birthday cake by Mommy Jasmine


This is a belated post about my son's birthday cake for his fifth birthday. Time flies! He's five already!

We did a little birthday do and I was supposed to find a home-based baker to bake the birthday cake but it totally slipped my mind!

Praise God that my church friend, Mommy Jasmine offered to bake her signature gluten-free birthday cake for my boy's birthday!

Before I confirmed my order with Jasmine, I asked my boy to choose a flavor. He promptly replied, orange. He also chose Lego Ninjago as his theme.


After discussing with Jasmine, we decided to go ahead with her signature Gluten Free Orange Almond Cake.

The three-layer orange sponge cake was divine! The crumbs were moist, fine, and the citrus-y aftertaste was invigorating. 

Too bad I forgot to snap photos of the elegant layers! We kept on eating and by night time, there was none left!


I also mentioned that I didn't want traditional buttercream frosting (yucky!) or fondant (full of sugar!). So Jasmine used Swiss buttercream frosting instead, which was lighter and more pleasant tasting.

The buttercream frosting between the layers wasn't too thick, which was really nice as you wouldn't feel that all you ate was cream. The Bahasa word for it was jelak.

Since this was a gluten-free cake, there was no normal wheat flour used to bake it. Jasmine used almond flour.

Not only so, it was oil-free and butter-free too! This was definitely one super nutritious cake which was super packed with fiber!


I loved the different hues of blue and cream buttercream decoration around the cake. Almond slices topped the cake beautifully.

My boy added three of his favorite Lego Ninjago minifigures on the cake.


If you need custom-made cakes for occasions and mooncakes, you should really check out the friendly and talented home-based baker, Mommy Jasmine.
