Moist chocolate (with beetroot,which is why it’s so moist) cake. With a chequered flag and the outline of the Silverstone track in fondant.
This was a cake I made for a friend’s little girl for her birthday…it was a very simple design really but she loved it so that was the main thing….all edible again. I make everything edible if at all possible ..otherwise what’s the point?!
This was for a friend for her 50th birthday..Clare is very into making her own cheese (which by the way is fantastic!) so this was my offering to her a cheese board cake.. Everything is edible..I really enjoyed making this.
It was all hand painted …no special tools…just knives, spoons, the end of icing nozzles (to make the screw heads in the cheeseboard) and a bit of food colouring (and vodka to mix it so it goes further and dries better).
Last week was the birthday party of my little one’s friend…7 years old,..his sister was having a party at the same time (the grand old age of 3).
Anyhoo I offered (as our gift probably to his Mum as much as anything LOL!!) to make the cake…
As per usual no fancy tools or tins but I reckon it came out OK…main thing is Dylan liked it….only trouble was he left the spider at the party venue (apparently there were lots of tears about this)…going to see them in the next couple of days …don’t tell him..I made him another spider =)
It’s my youngest boys birthday today so:
HAPPY BIRTHDAY HONEY XXXXXXXXX
A Pirate themed cake was requested so…..
The map was made of icing rolled out and then draped over the cake (makes it easier as no making sure it’s all nice and flat!). The map itself I hand painted on before the icing was put on the cake …
