It's been a really busy week, but I had Thursday put aside to make Sabrina's birthday cake.
Then I got called to help out in theatre Thursday morning. So, ok - I still had Thursday afternoon free (with the party Friday afternoon).
But of course morning work in theatre, evolved into afternoon work in theatre.
Well, I still had Friday morning...
And of course I was called out to a caesarean on Friday morning. 🙈
So, a little rushed - it could have done with some finessing - but here's the cake as it turned out.
The cone part is vanilla cream cheese pound cake, covered in a modelling chocolate / fondant blend.
The scoops of ice-cream are large cupcakes (rich chocolate, and red velvet) roughly covered in buttercream to look like ice-cream. The swirl of cream is also buttercream icing.
The design was inspired by ice-cream cone cakes made by Shawna McGreevy and Darcey Oliver.
Despite it being such a rush, it was really fun to make. And my daughter loved it - which is all that counts!
