A smash(ing) cake

A weekend ago was a very busy weekend for me.

I had the pleasure of making three very different types of birthday cakes for three very special children.

I had the opportunity to make my very first smash cake. As I have said before I hate wasting food, let’s not even talk about cake. I only knew of one type of smash cake – that is a normal cake often made for a child’s first birthday and given to them to smash. It does make for a few great photographs.

I came across a different type of smash cake on Instagram – it is a chocolate shell filled with all sorts of sweets.

I had an absolute ball making my first smash cake for my god-daughter and I must be honest and say my nerves were shot. I was so worried that it would break or would not come out the way I wanted it to. Whilst the perfectionist in me is not 100% happy with the results, my god- daughter loved it and that is all that counts.

I also had the opportunity to make some Katy Perry cupcakes for my godson.

The cupcake toppers were candy cane sweets with pictures of Katy Perry. I was concerned about the weight of the toppers and whether it would stand on the cupcakes and it certainly did but just a tip- if you are going to make these- rather insert the toppers into the cupcakes at the party or venue as the toppers fall over when travelling.

Nevertheless, I loved being creative and it gave me such joy making these for my godson.

I also made a birthday cake for my step- niece.

A busy weekend to say the least.
