Party cake, party cake, baker man, bake me a cake as fast as you can!
Thankfully, time-limited bakes are now a thing of the past and I'm able to take my time over important cakes. So it was a late night yesterday when I put the finishing touches to my twin nieces' 11th birthday cakes. The two roughly 1-shaped cakes were made to an exacting brief - coffee and caramel with 1950s dress and shoes for Lola, chocolate and almond with three pigs for Coral. I took artistic licence with her request for a pig on the Empire State Building - it looked more like a generic American tower, but I hope the finished cakes would still fit into the showstopper category.
