For Lorraine’s birthday it was time to choose a cake from the novelty cake book, yeay!
The mini monsters were the winner as they look fab and were something different as we like to challenge ourselves for this special birthday girl.
After covering the 4th monster with icing I was starting to wonder what we were doing! Since starting cake class I feel I should produce cakes at a certain level of skill and these monsters were not playing the game! We were back to the trying task of covering something all sides with icing such as the boxes for my 4 x family birthday cake back in April and the baby shower cake in the summer. You think I would have mastered it by now, but no!!
However as Kev was quick to point out, these were monsters and imperfections made them more monster like – he says all the right things! We kept on with them and once decorated they turned out pretty cool. With all the different monster styles it was fun watching people trying to choose their favorite
As with the sweet castle we made her a couple of years ago it doesn’t quite look like the picture in the cake book, but at least this one didn’t need ribbon wrapped round it to stop it falling over!!
