MadeItMonday: CAKE THE THIRD

Welcome to #MadeItMonday, where I post something I’ve made in the previous week, and where you can join in and post something you made too! The rules are easy: post a pic somewhere of something you’ve made in the last week (ish; let’s say in the last month as the hard-and-fast) and tag it. Sit back and enjoy scrolling through all the beautiful things we’ve collectively created, and celebrate the fact that humans can be awesome! πŸ™‚

Yet more cake! Because cake is glorious, cake is wonderful, cake is life, the universe and everything. Clearly.

Anyway, this one was another commission, this time for a 60th birthday party. The birthdayee requested a sheet cake, which I don’t do many of, so I went for something a little different for the decorations. I’ll be honest, I haven’t had an 80% freakout* with cakes for a while (at least not since the heart one back in June), but I totally did with this one. But then I called my husband, who greeted me with, ‘Cake looks great!’, and I calmed down, realised what was throwing me off, and fixed it. Insanity: For all creative pursuits, not just writing! *confetti*

So this one’s a pretty glorious coconut cake, filled with raspberry jam and raspberry buttercream, covered with vanilla buttercream, and decorated with more vanilla buttercream, toasted coconut, fresh raspberries, and Lindt balls in both white chocolate and mango flavours. (I was pleasantly surprised to discover that the mango ones have no added nasties, and use pumpkin and tumeric for the colouring, heh. Go Lindt.)

Anyway, cake! Yay!

(And yes, that’s totally plotting for Sanctuary book 3 there on the table in the background, HA.)

What have you made this week? (It doesn’t have to be fancy!!) Don’t forget to tag your contribution, or even better, leave a link in the comments!! I love seeing what inspiring things other people have made πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
