Cake!




My Word of the Week This week is Cake!
Every day has been focused on Cake!
For a Whole Week!
My Kitchen smells of cake, there is cake and icing everywhere and currently some cake pops being made from leftover cake...well, you can't waste cake can you?

I started baking last weekend and finally, today, Friday, one week on, I'm finished.
Now I just have to worry about getting my cake to the venue tomorrow and setting it up. I'll probably have nightmares about something going wrong.

So, by now you are probably wondering what is this cake that I've taken a whole week to make? Well, if I'm honest, it's taken longer than a week, because the top layer is already five weeks old. It's a rich fruit cake steeped with alchohol, covered in marzipan and icing. The decorations I began to make a fortnight ago. The preperation has taken months.

What is it?
It's a four tier wedding cake! As I said, the top tier is fruit but the rest is chocolate cake with chocolate filling and chocolate ganache and covered in icing.

I can't show you a picture just yet, but watch this space!

In the meantime I will show you my new scales which were gifted to me from John Lewis and have been a lifesaver as my scales broke a couple of weeks ago.
