What type of birthday cake do you make a 37 year old architect? A pinata cake complete with chocolate coins of course! Here's something I whipped up this last night and this morning for morning tea at his workplace.
First shot is the finished cake, the second photo is what is underneath the chocolate shell outer. Vanilla buttercake finished with chocolate butter icing. Topped with chocolate coins and choc chips.
The exhibitionist in me was sufficiently pleased with the stares and pointing and oohs and ahhs as I walked down the street in the city when delivering it to my husband's office. Of course you can't cover a cake like that up, just way too much risk of breakage. Well, that was my excuse.
This cake can be found in the Australian Women's Weekly Kids' Birthday Cakes book, the one with the mushroom house cake on the cover. It was as easy as pie to make and super quick.
I've been busy also with my macro setting on my camera, working as best I can with this dull autumny rainy weather. A new range of girls' brooches is destined this weekend for the Silly Gilly store. The full range of colours will be in store this weekend. These are great little gifts for girls or grown up girls. I can even make custom colour combinations at your request.
