Bake It Away......

Beach cake...

We have had such a wet school holiday period and the weekend was no better. It was in fact totally rainy, all the time. Master T finished making card houses and decided he might like to do some cooking. He exclaimed that he had 'never baked a cake'. So, with his sister's help, the cooking began. All went very well. His sister, being an experienced cake and biscuit maker, helped with the oven, and with the recipe. Whaallaa, one plain cake made. Now for the decorating. This is where the imagination came in. He decided on an 'ocean theme' with sea, sand and shells. The sea made from icing, the sand made from brown sugar. A tree in the middle represents the Earth. Shells he added as well made from coloured cachels.... The white is some raw pavlova that Miss T was making. This of course was used to make the waves... Cool huh! And taaadaa, the end result is above. Only one minor problem really which was how much colouring to use for the blue icing. Miss T got confused with vanilla and suggested 1 cap full. Oooppps!! We had blue everywhere. Hands, clothes, benchtop.... teeth. Even 1 day later and I look down to find 'blue' on my top and I haven't even eaten any. But. We have a very happy boy. He is now planning his next 'creation'.

Ciao for now

  1. I love it! Future pastry chef???

  2. Do great! Love the creative use of brown sugar for sand :)

  3. Very clever indeed, blue food colouring is terrifying, LOL, perhaps we will see him on the next junior Master chef!!!

  4. ANY food colour is terrifying to me. I've had a similar experience with Hot pink.
    I bet they thought it tasted fantastic though!

    Enjoy your family celebrations this weekend, perhaps you can enlist the littlest chefs to help decorate the cake!

  5. Top effort, Master T! That is a champion first cake, I am impressed. I think you have a couple of pro cake decorators on your hands there :)

    I love the meringue waves!

  6. How cute! I just love this cake! Too funny about blue being everywhere. It tends to do that, huh? :)

    And thanks so much for stopping by my blog. I'm so happy to be introduced to yours.

    Hope you have a wonderful day :)
