Last time I blogged I was about to face the task of actually cooking a cake from scratch and turning into a birthday cake. Not just any cake but a cake birthday girl had spotted in a professional cake shop of a doll within a cake. Not a big deal for some but for me it was very scary.
So I did want any sensible person would do in a "how on earth do I do this?" crisis and went onto youtube.
Sure enough someone had very very kindly put up a how to do so at least I had an idea of where to start.
|Nearly there! This was near the end, finishing touches yet to be added.|
Icing went inbetween each layer to keep it together. And then all around the sides. This went into the freezer for 45 mins to set. Freezer had been cleaned out a few days earlier so it fitted.
After this setting, Barbie was wrapped in clingfilm and placed in the middle. Then icing went all around and the colour was deemed not pink enough so we went darker after the picture below was taken.
All I can say is I learnt a lot about cake making in a very short time and I wouldnt be afraid to try again. Herself was so pleased it was worth every minute.
And while it did take a few hours to make but it didn't actually cost too much, certainly a lot less than a shop bought cake. Flour, eggs, caster sugar, icing sugar and some little ready made decorations.
Himself wants a combine for his birthday, I'll have to get practising.
All the best,
PS It tasted good!!!
