Looking for inspiration? Top Bananas! the Mumsnet cookbook is packed with great recipes your family will love.
I've been roped into making something for a charity bake off on Thursday. No one else will do it.Has to be relatively easy but look great. Cupcakes are out as I make those regularily. Help!
What about something like this:therufffarm.wordpress.com/2013/02/22/another-variation-of-the-pigs-in-the-mud-cake/
I made a malteaser one similar to that for a raffle recently and that is my back up plan. I might try a baked cheese cake. I'm off Wednesday so have plenty of time to make it.
What about this, you good with sugarpaste Mike?
Bugger, adding pic again...
I could do that with a nice chocolate fudge cake couldn't I?
I'm not bad with sugarcraft, I bake as hobby.
It's down to two options. Choc and Orange ring cake or a tall choc fudge cake. The fudge cake could really be decorated anyway.
Could you please post your ring cake recipe sounds good.
What's the charity? Could you do a themed cake? I know someone who makes fab 'booby cakes' for breast cancer awareness every year.
Will do tomorrow. Off to bed now.
Fab thank you
agnu its for the Nspcc. Not sure a boob cake would work I'll be trying this one today hug. It's not the one I tried last time but I can't find the magazine I used. Think it was baked and delicious.
Thanks mike that looks really good. I want to try out my bundt cake ring, think this'll be it.
I just did a plain fudge cake in the end. Been so busy here today. Chocolate orange buttercream amd a whipped choc ganache. I made a cute little owl to sit on top.
Did you take any pics?
Well, I did but looking at it the cake looks really wonky. It wasnt at all irl. I'll see if I can upload here.
Arse. Its on my profile instead.
That is amazing! I am very impressed and may also steal your owl design for my neice's birthday cake
Look on pintrest. There are loads of them on there. It was actually quite easy to do.
That wee owl is amazing! Did you make the flowers to or buy them?
Why thank you sweetest. I made the flowers too.
Fab cake! And owls are quite the thing just now.
Yes I noticed that billy. Lots of them around. My cake won the 'bake off' btw.
Yay! and deservedly so.
Well done you! Its so professional looking
Marking place to see mike's cake tomorrow cos I can't see profiles on the app..
very cute owl Mike <<ahem, MNHQ, can you kick tech harder about sorting out the currently rather rubbish Android app so that we can see pictures?>>Is there anything inside the owl or is he/she pure fondant?
Its a cake. Made it with the littlest hemisphere tims from lakeland.
I did wonder. I feel I may "need" some of those dinky hemisphere tins.
They are very useful. I made some cute lady birds too. Im sure they were only about £2.50 each.
