It was Lou Lou’s birthday coming up and time to plan her cake. For the a couple of years now I had thought about making her a Bagpus cake, but due to different reasons it hadn’t happened yet, this was the year.
She makes such amazing cakes that I wanted to make her a super special cake and as a Bagpus fan it was perfect for her. I designed it so Bagpus would be sat on his cushion to provide extra cake as I wasn’t sure how big he would end up and I wanted to make sure there was plenty of cake.
I had recently found a tutorial on Facebook and found some images of cakes and stills from the TV series to use as my guide. He was made from two 8″ square cakes, both vanilla with one of them with pink colouring in which allowed me to stack them up to create a stripped effect inside the cake – a little surprise for Lou Lou when she cut into it!
I stacked the cakes and started to carve and I was happy with how it turned out. I had a lot of fun adding the design to him, although the piping did test me as I am not the biggest fan and there was a lot to do, especially after I had made my Nephew’s cake which required the full cake to be icing in green to create a football pitch!
Happy Birthday Lou Lou. I hope you loved your cake and I hope you enjoy eating it and sharing with your friends and colleagues. You deserve an amazing cake for your birthday and you 100% should not be making it yourself!!
