I had no idea what to post this week. It’s past in a blur and I have nothing to show you. So much for taking more photos! Anyway, one thing we always enjoy as a treat on Sunday is cake, generally a shop bought one because I don’t bake so often anymore. But, I used to bake a lot and I’ve made a lot of cakes over the years. I was reading a post on Our Little Escapades where Jane had listed some of her little boy’s birthday cakes. So, taking inspiration from that I’m going to share some photos of mine.
Peppa Pig Car
I made this for the Little Man’s third birthday, all my little ones were big Peppa Pig fans.
My Little Pony
This was for my daughter Star on her 7th birthday which is one of my most read posts ever on this blog. Inside was rainbow coloured because the Pony is Rainbow Dash.
I’ve made a lot of football cakes but I chose this one because I was proud of the lion which I cut out of the icing freehand.
I’ve only ever made one wedding cake and I don’t think I’d take on the task again. The cakes were so big they just about fitted in my oven. I had to hire the cake tins for the bigger ones. Three were chocolate flavoured, but the top one was fruit. The figures on the cake were likenesses of the bride and groom and their two sons sitting on the side. This is a photo of it on my kitchen table, it looked much better on the cake table at the wedding but I don’t have the photo handy.
