This post chronicles the making of my dear friend Sarah-Jane’s birthday cake. It was made at the end of October this year (2011). It total, the cake and board weighed in at around 20 kilos, and had to be carried by two men into the venue for the party.
I had great fun making this cake and Sarah and her Mum cried for almost fifteen minutes straight when they came to see the finished article. I was terrified that they hated it, but was assured that they were overjoyed with it, if somewhat shocked at the size of it!
The brief for the cake was to provide a cake large enough to give a good slice to each of 150 people present at the birthday party – job done I’m sure you will agree.
