Happy Birthday Marco!

Today one of Sober and Hungry’s founding members turns 30! We did what any group of good friends should do and ensured that he was rather well lubricated last night. Amongst the cards and bottles there is a small tupaware box  full of crumbs that once stood tall in the bar in the form of a very delicious two tiered cake.

Cake Film Strip

We stuck to our trusted BBC recipe www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/easy_chocolate_cake_31070 and referred back to Pat for the perfect  butter icing and the smoothest fondant icing application technique www.youtube.com/watch?v=5GF9HjdSYo4.

As a film lover and The Who fan we  invested in some edible icing from http://www.caketopperdesigns.co.uk (who we would strongly recommend for the best price and fantastic customer service!) and went a bit Blue Peter making a handmade cake topper from card, pipe cleaners and lolly pops stuck into oasis bought from the local garden centre – clever eh? Top Tip: The bottom layer is a sweet tin with printed paper wrapped around it to add height!

I think you will agree – it looks pretty good!

Happy Birthday Marco – we love you lots!
