I was overjoyed when an old friend contacted me to make her mother in law’s 60th birthday cake. We spent 5 years at school together and although she was in the year below me we had many similar interests. Timing for this cake couldn’t have been better, I really got to enjoy the process without the usual stress of other commitments getting in the way.
Those of you who create “things” for others will understand my excitment when Nat told me EXACTLY what she was after!!! Much time is often spent in planning cake designs, emails and phone calls back and forth, meetings, and even after all of that I am sometimes not sure if I got it right!
3 chocolate mud cakes decorated to resemble our local casino chips.
All stacked and ready to go!
Also included were some silver sugar stars and an isomalt 60 to decorate the top, and a fan of sugar cards to lean against the bottom of the cake.
I knew it was heavy when I carried it out to the car, I just got a message….official total weight = 15kgs 😛
