The cake

The last few days have been spent melting chocolate and then freezing it in a metal bowl. 

And licking the spoon, obviously.

There are worse ways to spend your time. 

And all because I saw this pinata cake on Trashalou’s blog and knew it was the cake for Joe.



N.B. When you give your already over excited 9 year old a wooden mallet and a cake to smash

don’t suddenly realise that you’ve only gone and made the cake

on your best ceramic cake stand…

it survived but I don’t know how!

    brilliant cake, my birthday is soon and I think I’ll just have to make one. Although I may put in on my bread board as I am sure to smash any china!
