Cake of the Week: An Olympic Birthday Cake!
Good afternoon all. Today is my birthday, so just a quick post for now to share with you all this week’s “Cake of the Week” – my own birthday cake!
A year ago, I made myself a classic carrot cake (one of my all time favourites) and I remember noting in my blog post then that my birthday this year would coincide with the start of the London 2012 Olympic Games – and that consequently I would theme my birthday cake around this historic event.
Well, here it is…. what do you think? 3 tiers of chocolate cake (which keeps very well thankfully – as we’ll be eating this cake over many days I feel!), with one featuring the London skyline and the other two decorated around the colours and logo of Team GB plus the Olympic rings themselves.
We’ll be cutting the cake later on this evening – and already I’m thinking about the dilemma many of my customers report…. the trauma of cutting into the cake and destroying the design! Got to be done though, after all – life is for living and cake is for enjoying!
If you’d like to see more pictures, including more of the London skyline silhouettes head on over to my Facebook page.
In the meantime, I hope you’ll enjoy the spectacle of the 30th Olympiad and get behind your team! In our household we are already enjoying the variety of sports on show and are wishing Team GB good luck and “Go for Gold”!
