25th April 2011: Here's a cricket-themed birthday cake for a cricket fan. This is aka the LOL cake... thank goodness it's for a friend's hubby's bday! ;D
There's a story to this, so please bear with the longer than usual post.
Three weeks ago, our dear friend, Radda, e-mailed us. She'd like us to make a cake for her hubby's birthday. They live in Napier. So, how to send the cake to them? We looked at the possibility to courier. A few days later, she told us they were coming up here in Auckland for the Easter and that we can make the cake then. (In my mind: Okay, so maybe she's planning to throw a party for hubby with Auckland friends.) So everything's good so far...
Come Monday morning. Cake's on the cake stand... so cute, and ready to picked up. :) Yes, everything is good!
Me: Hey, the cake is butter-free. Just in case you guys aren't into butter. :)
Her: Oh, good! Coz I'm planning to keep it until 23rd May.
oohhh, everything's not so good!
LOL! We had such a big laugh! It was great catching up with them!
Well, they ended up having a party with their Auckland friends that night to celebrate his birthday... because there's a cake... a month in advance! ;D
So, here's the chocolate-flavoured cake with vanilla butter(not!)cream and fondant decors:
Advance happy birthday, Hugh! ;p
Thank you for joining us in this sugary-sweet journey!
