Hi again, as you know, I currently have no oven (well technically I have one, it’s just not connected!) In my freezer were 3 cakes destined to become my nephew’s 21st birthday cake. I haven’t mentioned this before as my lovely niece, Georgia Goldsack, had organised a surprise party for her big brother, so I had to keep schtum 😶
Anyway….the party’s over now, everything went off without a hitch, Daniel Goldsack was suitably surprised and we all had a great time 💃
Georgia had given me a few ideas, Game of Thrones (Stark) music, guitars and Guinness to name a few! I filled and covered all three cakes, made the decorations and packed them as carefully as I could for the 5 hour journey from Burnley to Lavenham in Suffolk. No-one was more surprised than me that they all got there in one piece!
As usual, I forgot to take a ‘posed’ photo, but here are some that were taken 📷
The bottom tier was vanilla with raspberry jam and white chocolate ganache filling and crumb coat, and the two top ones were chocolate with chocolate ganache filling and crumb coat. Decorations included cake lace music stave (using DIY cake lace from a previous post)
Guitars, Guinness, ‘Stark’ wolf sigil from GOT, and Iron Throne also from GOT 😋
I have to say I was rather pleased with how it turned out, and it tasted delicious. Dan loved it, and that’s the most important thing.
To say I was shattered when we got back is an understatement! It’s now 5 days later, and I’m just about back to what passes as normal for me 😏 but it was worth it to spend quality time with family, and to be there to celebrate Dan’s special birthday.
Well, that’s all for now, but I will be posting a kitchen update later!
Stay safe and healthy
