Birthday Baking Mess....

I do it all the time (well on every birthday)...I have a great idea to make a cake, I have a vision in my head of how it will look, and then half-way through all that making & baking I say to myself 'why didn't I just go and buy a cake'?...........


You can see why I think that, there's not an ounce of clear workspace in the kitchen.....and god knows how much it has all cost, it would be so much easier to go to Asda and buy a Mickey Mouse cake for £6.48 that is a ' Light sponge with a delicious raspberry jam and buttercream filling covered in soft icing with edible decorations'


A delicious raspberry jam and buttercream filling it has but I'm not so sure of the 'light sponge' and unless you like eating cheap imported plastic then I don't think Mickey Mouse will be edible...


And how do those professionals get that icing so smooth.....and clean??? Mine is all lumpy & bumpy and has splodges of cocoa powder & blue food colouring on it, along with cake crumbs and hairs from the pastry brush that I used in an attempt to get rid of the cocoa powder, food colouring & cake crumbs......... and I still haven't finished it! I still have to do the decorations & attempt to cut out letters with some fancy cutter that I haven't used before and make stars to (hopefully) stick on wires (yes I have a very good imagination)......


Oh well, that's another day........I'm off to bed now to dream of cupcakes, cake-pops and Mickey Mouse.
