Not for a huge party or anything. Just a "gathering". So, I have two options (as I'm not brilliant but these are what I do well. 1) Victoria sponge cake, icing as in fondant with "something" on the top. 2) chocolate cake with chocolate ganache. If I did either what could I decorate them with. Which would be nicest. I'm beginning to panic!
She'd just be thrilled with a cake. Think she'd prefer chocolate but at a dinner the other week I did a chocolate ganache pie (like a cheesecake base) and worry its too "samey" do you think it'd be ok?
Inthe , do what your most comfortable doing, keep it simple, i guess with a fondant cake you can go to town with some decs, and theres so many cutters out there that makes things so easy now, flowers, blossems, butterflies etc, just have a go,i'm in the middle of making handbags decs, (now have i got the wording right) !!
Thanks both! Think I might go for chocolate cake with fondant icing as then I can do nice decorations and it won't look too similar to choc ganache pie. Do you think that'll be ok? I've looked at threads on here for recipes for chocolate cakes, now to think of decorations. nanny you might just get away with that sentence ;)
In the, i made a fab choc cake the other day, i melted some cocoa powder in hot water, then i melted dark choc added it to the cooled mixture and folded it in, and it was fab, well that what she said anyway. What were you thing of for decs then, no vintage please!!
Well nanny I bought all lovely. Things for it and then (am slightly ashamed of myself here) because of her insistence have made her a penis shaped. Cake! I did chocolate fudge cake and ganache over the top. Did a tray bake and then. Cut it and layered it to shape! Good job I am going on my "vintage" course next weekend to make myself feel more refined!
Ha ha ha, funniest thing i've heard all day! but whose did you copy of i'd like to know??? two of my favourite things, choccy cake and ganache. Got any pics to show me then? or are you keeping it all to yourself? tut tut, shame on you.
I'm quite impressed with it! There was one funny moment when I shouted through to dh "my testicles falling apart!" (God knows hat neighbours thought) I ummed and Ahmed about detail but thought hairs and veins would be a bit off putting so I've gone for more of an "outline" !
