The first book I’ve made in far too long

…is a cake!

Made for the Thank God It’s Over party that my NaNoWriMo region had. We have this tradition where we each year choose one strange thing that we all try to put in our novels, and this year it was a drunk seagull, hence the title (Adventures of a Drunk Seagull).

Cake! More cake!

So, these are the cakes my friend and I made for our housewarming party last weekend:

Rainbow cake with small marshmallows.

“Fancycake” invented by me: Sponge cake covered with saffron meringue covered with white chocolate truffle covered with dark chocolate and decorated with gold leaf just because I could. My mother’s a vegan, so I made her a fruit salad, but I knew she’d be disappointed if she didn’t get a chance to eat gold, so I put some on top.

Carrot cake with lime and ginger frosting and small marzipan carrots.

Then my flatmate panicked because she thought we wouldn’t have enough cake, and made an apple cake and two kinds of biscuits. It was a nice party.

Marbled ice cream cake

Marbling, like all other things in life, have a proper time and place. Namely, all the time and everywhere. Especially when you’re baking. This is a marbled ice cream cake. It’s the yummiest cake I know, and when done right, it’s the prettiest too.

The last picture is one of my marbled papers. It’s done in a fan pattern, which is the pattern I’ve described how to make on the cake.

If anybody wants to make the cake, and can’t find Daim chocolate, tell me and I’ll send it to you. It’s actually the chocolate I work with making, so…

Princess’ cake

 

In Sweden, we have a kind of cake called Prinsesstårta, Princess’ Cake. It’s covered in green marzipan and has a marzipan rose on top. Me and Fanny did… another interpretation on the name, for a friend who had a princess-themed birthday party.

Cake!

I was going to write something thoughtful here, but then my whole evening just disappeared. Have some cake instead!
