I have busying away all weekend making a birthday cake. I can assure you that every surface is sticky and I had to repeat the washing up because I managed to cover everything in butter so thoroughly that it wouldn’t come off!
Here is a bit of an action sequence…
Many lemons were skinned and sacrificed in the making of the lemon syrup.
The cake has been halved and drizzled with lemon syrup and is now awaiting it’s buttery friend.
This is my icing station with the cake all buttered up with a lemon buttercream.
This the cake assembled and ready to go in it’s cake box.
Cute dog right? I think the beauty of this fella is captured in his big eyes and bright red tongue! I’m looking forward to giving him away to the birthday boy. 🙂
