A few weeks ago… when discussing my mums birthday, my sister persuaded me that baking a birthday cake would be a good idea.
Having never baked a birthday cake – as such, before, it seemed a huge challenge but l decided that yes it might be a good idea.
So having spent a few weeks collecting together the many things l would need, and finding the right recipe for the 10 inch round cake tin l wanted to use, l was then ready for the big bake off.
Oh ,my… baking is tiring!!
I baked two sides of the Victoria Sponge, Filled with Jam and home made butter cream. I then crumb coated with a butter cream layer, and covered in fondant!
It proved no easy task. But l was happy to finish it, and l am just hoping that my mum loves her cake at our big birthday meal on Saturday.
Here is the cake….
My crochet is a bit slow at the moment. Im in the middle of a few projects, which l hope l can share with you sometime soon x
