It’s going to be a long fat year!

3 Jun

Aradia and Mr Whit have asked for a gilded, 5 tiered, Marie Antoinette inspired cake for their wedding.

As VP of Evolution Cakes I thought it was time to start experimenting.

It turns out it’s really hard to gild a cake…It’s going to take many months and many cakes to get to a satisfactory result.

We also had a go at making gilded jewels and scroll-work which were surprisingly easy…these cupcakes didn’t stand a chance…num num num!

I had a go on a Caribbean Cake with chocolate fondant as I think we’ll soon be sick of sponge cake.

  • 2 or 3 really squishy old nanas
  • 150g SR flour
  • 150g Soft Butter
  • 150g brown sugar
  • 50g dessicated coconut
  • juice and zest of a lime
  • 2 eggs

Just squish up the bananas and mix everything together in a bowl.  Whack into a lined cake tin (I used a 6 six inch metal one) and bake at 180°C until springy about 50 mins.  Stick a skewer into it to make sure the middle is done…or something else sharp and pokey…I used a lobster fork as they don’t get used for fuck all else.
