I received a call on Monday "can you make a cake for a party on Saturday?'. 'Sure', I said.
Received an email the next morning ..'How BIG can you make the cake?"
BIG!! The cake is over 70cm tall, excluding sign, and was made to celebrate the much loved Alan's 50th birthday AND his 30th year working in the Gaiety in Dublin. We didn't meet Alan yesterday as he was barred for the weekend so the party could be set up but, thanks to everyone we had the pleasure of meeting and working with, the man is much loved and admired.
The cakes are all 5" high and are: 10" chocolate biscuit cake, 8" raspberry and vanilla and a 6" Strawberry swirl. We also provided an 8" lemon cake for cutting (or keeping).
I like feeding my family and friends. Love new recipes and love making cakes. Love making anything really, I'm creative. I share my home with my husband, three sons, a dog, a lizard and a tortoise. I've made this life for myself but frequently lament never getting to be 'just left alone'. Only need 5 minutes mind as for some sodding reason I start to miss them after that.
