Cake, Sweet

Happy… Cake

As the little-ist baker had gone to her grandparents for the night, I took the opportunity to bake and decorate a cake.
I really fancied a ‘birthday cake’ meaning sponge cake, icing, buttercream and all decorated quite pretty.

Not my best decorating but the best I could muster at nearly midnight!

As it wasn’t my birthday, or anyone else’s who would share cake with me, and I had no other occasion to celebrate I decided to make a happy…cake.  The idea is that eating cake makes me happy (that is until weigh in day!) and you could fill in the blank with whatever you want to celebrate:
– Happy Tuesday Cake
– Happy Sausage sandwich for dinner Cake
– Happy “oh someone just gave me a piece of” Cake

…you get the idea.

The cake I made was a chocolate sponge with chocolate spread and buttercream filling.  Silly me for deciding to ice a chocolate cake in white icing, on a hot evening whilst sleep deprived at 11:30pm.  I don’t always think too far ahead.  So please forgive the poor icing as it did taste good.
