Out of the kindness of her heart, she decided we had to bake a cake for our friend’s 22nd birthday. As she is a massive fan of Winnie the Pooh, we gave ourselves the task of making a cake that somehow not only tasted good but looked like her favourite character. After five very long hours of very hard work, we produced a cake that we both feel very proud of. We used a standard Victoria sponge recipe and made four layers in total,sandwiching them together with a ridiculous amount of jam. Careful planning and (several) steady hands resulted in a fairly good likeness which she was incredibly happy to receive from us.
Also, its really quite surprising how wide a range of colours you can buy ready rolled icing in nowadays (even if somehow the icing just tasted of yellow).
