It’s nearly Valentine’s…
so that seems like the perfect
time to talk heart cake…
I did not read the bit that said “this was not easy”.
I think my brain was not paying attention
to minor details like that at the time!
So I asked our baker, who was making the only
cake not made by family and friends,
just to make us something simple…
like, um, this heart cake.
And make he did. I believe he actually made
about 4 versions… which makes me cringe a little!
We still have this much cake left
but it’s in the freezer to be saved for…
whenever you’re meant to save things for!
But I was thinking that maybe, just maybe
it would good to make a version myself.
Maybe just a small one?
Looking at the tutorial, it doesn’t
look that hard does it?
If anyone has seen an easier
way to do it, do let me know!
Oh but the heart bunting… well that’s at least simple!
Snip into your straws (so you put the twine through them)
and then you fold over little bits on tape onto your twine…
If anyone has heart cake suggestions,
or has made one, do let me know…
Maybe I could cheat by cutting a cake
in half and use a heart cookie cutter
to fill the middle bit?
(This is why someone else made the cake!)
