Cake of the Week: Fireman Sam
One of the joys of cake decorating is the element of surprise, wondering just what cake design the upcoming week will bring. A surprise for me sometimes, but even more so for my hubby (aka Mr Cupcake and Bake) who wanders out into the kitchen sometimes wondering just “what on earth” he’ll find me producing this time??!!!
We had quite a laugh when I was making the subject of this week’s “Cake of the Week” as he walked in at the end of his days work to find what appeared to be a “small child sitting on the worktop” in front of me! In fact it was my Fireman Sam cake, made for quite the demanding young birthday boy who wanted a “Sam” cake and not a fire engine!
So, not to disappoint, I made a 18″ high cake model of Fireman Sam in his full uniform, complete with helmet, jacket, big fireman’s boots and a water hose. Completely edible, in chocolate cake and not a fire engine in sight! Happily, little Sonny was very pleased with his very special cake… job done.
