This is a first for me, I've made a cake that I won't be eating!! Don't worry it's not because I've gone off cake! It's because it's for someone else! It is for my father-in-law's friend's daughter's birthday!* It is tomorrow and I was asked to make her cake! Happy Birthday Lisa!!^ This recipe can be found on Nigella's website!!
|The icing: it has to sit for about an hour maybe a little more and whisked every so often.|
|Not all cakes need icing.....|
|....but really isn't it all about the icing?!?!|
note: I found the plate at Sainsbury's 1/2 off! I bought one for me too! I might have to go back and get the gold or silver. It's perfect for a 20cm (8in) cake!
*it's really not that confusing!
