WOYWW #122 - NOTHING BUT YESTERDAY'S CAKE

I don't have a workdesk to show as there isn't much going on.  I finished my bobble hat, I've started a new tea cosy (more later) and my album is still being stuck in.  (Thanks to those who commented on the family album - some very interesting words - thanks).

However, I did make a birthday cake yesterday for Small and would love to share with you how it went.

Here is the finished product:-



I made two vanilla sponges...........



Covered them with vanilla and chocolate buttercream..................

Added a layer of Icing to the top (for grass).....................


Added some more cake for a bump..................



Made some bits and bobs to go on the top...........................

Mushroom, Mario and some egg


Mario again


Coins, roads, blocks and sign


Added LOADS of chocolate coins....................................


and a very sparkly candle

Thanks for looking.  What's on your wordesk begins with http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com and there are many people who show their actual workdesk and not just a pile of cake.  (Hope I don't get disqualified for not entering a proper workdesk AGAIN!)

See you soon x

Ha!That is one great cake! I've so enjoyed making cakes for my two over the years. And they didn't care that they weren't perfect - though yours looks like it is :D

Love the cake. Used to make my two their birthday cakes and always waited with baited breath for what they were going to demand be made. One year it was a pink elephant with a curly trunk please mummy!!!

Fabulous cake, I have an 8 year old with a DS that has to be surguically removed from his hands and that would be right up his street!

Well aren't you clever! I love the patience and the modesty - a few bits and bobs..OMG that would have taken me days. And the foresight to make 2 sponges..genius!
