Everybody’s starry eyed
This Sunday was the dedication service for my friends’ baby boy, and they had a big celebration. Of course honorary Auntie Kate offered to make a cake! Multicoloured stars were requested so multicoloured stars were provided, along with three tiers of sponge and my first ever wire cake topper (verdict: could do better, wire is fiddly, must practice). In spite of the crazy heat (good news for ice cream eaters, bad news for fondant) all was well and the cake got great reviews! And I must admit to being pretty pleased with it, mainly thanks to my brilliant new mixer and a different madeira cake recipe – check out the recipe and a whole host of helpful tips here.
