This time last year.... Hello Kitty Cake

Hello Kitty Cake - This is the cake I made last year for Jasmine's 2nd Birthday - a rather simple creation with three sponge cakes and lots of fondant! I was quite pleased with this overall although I need to know how to create a smoother surface for my carved cakes as Hello Kitty's head is too bumpy for my liking! (Please comment your ideas on fixing this problem!).

I did ice with just a layer of apricot jam underneath and am suspicious that buttercream underneath instead would lead to a smoother result.

This year's theme is penguins so got to get thinking on developing my sketchy ideas into more solid plans as time is running out!

Day One!

This blog is a diary of the creative experiments of a mum of two beautiful girls. Am holding one right now and need to get back to helping the other eat her breakfast!

Challenge number one: Not enough time!
