I just realised that I forgot to post a piccy of DC2’s birthday cake (it was ^only^ 5 months ago!)
DC2 adores Mini Mouse, so it seemed the obvious choice. DH did his usual thing of googling for an apropriate image, and making a couple of easy chocolate cakes.
After forming the right shape from the cakes, he cut out a piece of greaseproof paper the same size & shape as the cake, and copied the picture of Mini onto it. Using this as a guide, he rolled out and cut up the various coloured packs of ready-made icing he’d bought and then decorated the cake with them.
It always sounds so simple, but I seriously doubt I could do such a good job. Why not check out his efforts from previous years?
After months of debate, DD1 finally decided that she wanted a Raa Raa cake for her birthday. So DH got to work making the same easy chocolate cake he made for DD2’s birthday earlier in the year.
He then cut out a piece of greaseproof paper the same size & shape as the cake, and copied a picture of Raa Raa onto it. Using this as a guide, he rolled out and cut up the various coloured packs of ready-made icing he’d bought and then decorated the cake with them.
Looks good doesn’t it? 🙂
Why not check out his efforts from previous years!
After he’d made two square chocolate cakes & sandwiched them together, he copied a picture of Pooh onto some sugar paper, and then cut the cake to be the same shape.
He bought the coloured icing, rolled it out, cut it into the appropriate shapes & voila! A wonderful cake! He makes it all seem so easy, I’m tempted to have a go myself, but I wouldn’t want to steal his thunder! 😉
A couple of years ago DH decided he would make the girls birthday cakes. He had never made a cake before, so I showed him my favourite carrot cake recipe & he went from there – so far he has made Peppa Pig, a dinosaur, and a caterpillar.
DD1 requested another caterpillar cake for her birthday this year, so he tried to do something a little bit different to last time.
He made the carrot cake in one of those doughnut shaped tins & cut it up to make the body, the head is a muffin (made with the same cake mix) and its all covered in that rollable icing.
