Birthday cakes made easy....

We celebrated having a twelve year old girl with a giggly "sleep"over and pamper party two weeks ago.  Watching the new BBC2 Baking Made Easy programme earlier in the week, the lovely twelve year old really like the cake shown.  This was our slightly more frugal (and cheating as we actually bought the cake!) version:

Here's how we made it:
  • Buy a (yummy but deceptively small) Taste the difference cake from local supermarket,
  • Put lots of  chocolate matchsticks around the edge,
  • Chuck a lot of raspberries on top, 
  • Use a vegetable peeler to grate chocolate onto the raspberries 
  • Give it the professional edge by sprinkling icing sugar on the top.

Happy  Birthday twelve year old lovely girl!

  1. Love the honesty of this post. Looks pretty yummy! May just have to share your idea by serving it up to some chocolate loving mummies coming for a playdate this week!


Thank you for your lovely comments, they really do brighten my day!
