For Gary’s birthday we decided he needed a magic card cake.
I modelled a magic card for Adam’s 30th surprise birthday cake which came out really well,
although I felt it should have been flat rather than 3D.
The writing ended up sitting on top of the cake because I made it out of icing. My original plan was to paint it on, but car problems took up cake time 😦 This was plan B!
The cake was vanilla sponge with chocolate buttercream in the middle, which worked rather well.
We used sparkler candles in the cake for Gary, which do sparkle but just not enough in my opinion! We sat and watched them burn making oooh and arrrh noises when one of them sparkled (indoor and rather pathetic firework display!). Kev took loads of pictures to try and capture a sparkling moment and out of them all 2 snapped sparkling moments!
