Have you noticed how the good old store-bought cakes no longer cuts the mustard when it comes to kids’ birthdays?
It seems that cake making is now a competitive sport at kids’ birthdays between mums. So if your child is getting older, and you don’t want to shell out on a professional cake, then let me help you.
Now before I start, first and foremost, I am not a professional in any sense of the world. I just like decorating cakes for my kids.
I think I’m getting slightly better at it as the years go on. If you’re a bit nuts like me and want to have a crack, cake decorating can actually be great fun. It can also be extremely frustrating if you’re winging it like I have been. So I thought, why not share what I have learned at 2am after half a bottle of wine, many tears and some swear words that would make Sharon Osborne blush.
Firstly, don’t stress. It may look like these mums have participated in Cake Boss challenges, but it’s not as hard as it seems. Trust me, I once made this.
Some things you can get around. This isn't one of them. Don't go covering a styrofoam box in fondant, it will only end in tears. Yours and the children's.
