baker's man (woman), bake me a cake as fast as you can......
I've been wanting to try this for ages and the Halloween party
I went to at the weekend provided just the right excuse
It started with a lot of baking, 6 cakes in 6 different colours!
It took me all week, a layer a day which I then froze
(did you know sponge cake freezes very well, I think it tastes better after freezing too)
I then used a bowl to cut round the cakes so they where exactly the same size
I then layered the cakes on top of one another
One layer with frosting
And then next with jam
Layer after layer
Until I had this
I then covered the whole cake with frosting
(yes it was sweet, oh so sweet)
Nobody will know what's inside until they cut it
I then made this, can you guess what it is?
While it was setting I added silver spray (edible of course) and some bats
I then smashed the edible glass (did you guess that's what it was?!)
it's sugar and water heated then cooled, very simple with a fab result
And with the help of some red food colouring I ended up with this
What do you think? Pretty convincing?
I learnt a lot from this process,
the glass was a bit cloudy (I think the sugar wasn't heated enough or maybe too much) and the cakes where a bit wonky
But that didn't effect the taste!
