Boy did I have fun at cake class in week 5! As Halloween was coming up, we made a pumpkin cake… or at least that was the plan! I ran out of time (again) and didn’t manage to put the face on the pumpkin in class, so mine was more like a Cinderella, bibbity, boppity, boo cake!
Every week, our teacher gives us a new recipe to try and this time had a go at making a chocolate cake. I had a bit of an accident getting the first sponge out and it broke in two, so I had to mix up a second batch and bake again. But at least I got to taste the broken chocolate cake and my oh my, it was scrummy! Great recipe Tracy – thanks!
Making the sponges into a pumpkin shape certainly had its challenges, but I had loads of fun trying, and such a laugh with my friend, Claire. I don’t know what I’d do without Claire – she sure makes cake class fun!
As I didn’t finish before the end of class, I had homework again. Just a few more leaves around the bottom to stop the tendrils looking like worms and a black Jack-o-lantern face completed the cake.
The edible bright green glitter was my favourite bit… love it!
My lovely neighbour, Gill, has two little boys, so I knew exactly where my cake was going! According to the eldest, Louis, it’s the best cake he’s EVER tasted, although I think he might be a bit biased…
And my cake inspired me to make a punch art card too … using pumpkin pie cardstock …what else?
