Another day in the kitchen today.
I hope you don't mind my posts this week being a bit cake orientated! And a bit short.
I have a big order for a two year old's birthday party on Saturday. Her Mum has ordered brownies, blueberry cupcakes, chocolate eclairs, scones and a raspberry tart. Today I made a start by making the main birthday cake.
Birthday girl Ruby loves Peppa Pig. They didn't want anything too complicated so a simple one-tier three-layer red velvet cake with the piggy design was the order.
I started on the sponges at 7.30am then popped off to to the gym at 10am for an hour whilst they cooled. I finished at about 5.30pm....even a simple cake takes several hours!
Here is the final cake.
