Daily Top 3 - Apr 12, 2012

My First Ever Cake!

This was the first cake I ever made. In fact, I didn’t even make it – I bought three lumps of madeira cake and stuck them together with jam!

It was supposed to replicate the ‘bomb’ on the left that I’d made for my son’s spy party. The sticks of dynamite were tubes of Mentos, still with the paper on! I had no idea how to cover a rectangle with fondant, so I gathered it all at the back and cut off the corners. And, yes, that is my breadboard covered in tin foil. :-)

I made it with my mum and we had the best time. I was hooked after that!

I’m embarrassed that this made the Daily Top Three, just because you were all checking out how hilarious it was!

I THINK YOU DID AN AWESOME JOB , I DONT KNOW WHAT A BOMB LOOKS LIKE BUT THIS ONE LOOKS GOOD ,

Pamela ...

Hilarious? NO WAY!! This caught our eye just from the subject matter and skill, not because it is hilarious. For a first cake…WOWZA!!! Excellent job! I remember themed parties for my kids. I miss those.

Pam ...

I started decorating cakes around this time last year and have followed you on Facebook for the last 6 months. It makes me so happy to see this picture and know that even someone as talented as you had to start somewhere. Thanks for sharing and giving those of us still learning the craft a wee confidence boost.
