More cakage August 8, 2010Posted by inspiredbywolfe in Sweet things.
A quick post to summarise some of my recent cake-related activities!
After the Cluedo cake, I got inspired to do a couple more entries for the Threadcakes competition. Click on the images below to go to the entries, and I again urge you to look through the gallery, as there are lots of brilliant cakes!
I made a cake in the shape of a cow! It was lemon-flavoured but I coloured it red so it looked more like meat:
I also made a series of cupcakes with hedgehogs on them, mainly because I thought the design was pretty cute:
And finally, I helped a friend ice 118 cupcakes for her daughter’s birthday. Why 118 cupcakes? Because each one represented an element in the periodic table! My friend has put a post on her blog explaining the process here, and there’s a shot of the final cupcake periodic table here.
My recent flurry of cake-related activity is funny given that I much prefer savoury things to sweet things. I do, however, very much enjoy decorating cakes so I’m sure I’ll do more in the future. For those readers rolling their eyes at all the cake posts around here – never fear! There are more savoury dishes coming up!
