A Post about Cake

19 Apr

Entirely nothing to do with feminism: I made the most amazing cake this week! (Yes, I do say so myself.)

Caaaaake!

I had been itching to try out using sugarpaste (or fondant, and what’s the difference anyway?) since I had to cancel my daughter’s birthday party due to illness, and with a grandma visit looming, I finally got the chance. It went pretty well. The inside is a huge madeira cake flavoured with lemon zest and juice in four layers with a filling of pink lemon buttercream and raspberry jam. The outside of the madeira cake is covered in the same buttercream, on top of which I put yellow fondant icing. The stars are also made of fondant and stuck on with piping gel. It was almost painful to cut into the cake, but it was worth it:

One of my friends described it as the happiest diabetic coma ever.
