As regular readers know, I bake cakes for the organisation Free Cakes for Kids. Just after we got back from Austria, there was a request for a cake for a young carer, a boy aged 10. I waited an for someone to respond, but everyone was busy, so the day after my wedding lunch I found myself in the kitchen once more... It wasn't too much of a hardship, I hasten to add, since I doubled up the quantity of chocolate cake and made one for Mr W and myself :) It was a slightly challenging request for an XBox 360 cake. I'm afraid I wasn't too sure what an XBox 360 was, - and google images showed me that it is literally a BOX which wouldn't have made a terribly exciting cake - so here was what I came up with instead - the light on the cake meant that the photo didn't come out terribly well.
(Oh and here's the one I made for us!)
As it's holiday time, most of the bakers seem to be away, so I've found myself with another request hot on its heels - this time for twins. So hopefully next Tuesday I'll be sharing the TWO cakes that I've baked for them!
