All of the cakes

This weekend I entered a cake competition called Cake Off. I’m not really Australia’s next MasterChef but I like cooking and I like eating so I thought I’d give it a shot. Plus the lovely Maddie Crofts was hosting it and afterwards the contestants and spectators got to eat all the cake, so it was a pretty good deal. 

Do you remember the Women’s Weekly kids’ birthday cake book? I made the castle cake from that, except in chocolate instead of vanilla.

Later I made cake truffles by mixing the leftover cutout cake bits with the leftover icing.


Also it was Sophie Gyles‘ birthday, and she is lovely too, and I couldn’t face any more chocolate cake, so I made her a Persian love cake.

Now I am full.
