Hi all :)
I had the honor of doing an “Operation Sugar” cake, the other week for a lucky teenager James! Operation Sugar is a charity in New Zealand that provides birthday cakes to sick children (similar to the UKs “Baking a Smile”). This was my first Operation Sugar cake and it was heaps of fun to do!
The Birthday Boy was turning thirteen and is a huge fan of Call of Duty (and the guns in Call of Duty). So I decorated the cake with some bullets, bullet holes, a hand painted gun silhouette and hand-painted solider. As well as this I had some dirt and dog tags with his name on the top! My favourite part though, had to be the airbrushing!
It was a banana cake, with dark chocolate ganache and a fondant covering! Yum!
It was such a worthwhile experience doing this cake, and I encourage other New Zealander’s to do the same!
Thanks, Josie xxx
