Rosey Posey

Urgh this is so no the best photo I have ever taken, and the low quality is a shocker, so first of all sorry about that!  I will try and find the original and replace it with a better one!  
In the mean time, the overall cake and the idea is really cute!

I made this for a friend's birthday.  It is a three layer, neapolitan flavoured cake, with layers of the same flavour buttercream holding together the cake.  Finished off with lots and lots of piped rosettes. 

It looked great when it was cut into, with the chocolate, strawberry and vanilla layers all so lovely and distinctive.  Super :) 

We then proceeded to shove my friend's face fully into the middle of this cake a little later in the evening... what a way to go :D 

After that the layers were a little more smushed together .... still worth it! 

Thanks for reading!

A Fanciful Cake for a Glamorous Lady

This was a really simple, but wonderfully relevant little cake, made for my best friend's birthday. 

Sam is the writer of the blog see the world through my eyes (though I think I may have distracted her a little too much from her make up and nails, with crochet, whoops!). And for as long as I have known her, she has had the most fantastic make up and nail varnish collection, colours and products galore, wonderful!


The cake I made for her reflected this passion of hers, et voila one lovely chocolate cake covered with chocolate fudge icing, decorated with an eye shadow palette and make up brush, made from fondant.

Simple but effective!
