It is uber sunny and hot AGAIN today!! Glorious, glorious sunshine!
About a week ago I had some friends over for some goodbye drinks, and I made one of my friends a birthday cake because I'm not going to be here to celebrate it with her! :(
I decorated it and iced it myself!
It did look a LIIIIITTTLLLEE bit like porridge, but it got better...you'll see!!
I had to adjust the timing of the recipe because my oven is old and grumpy and doesn't like to bake cakes sometimes!
I heated up some apricot jam to brush on to the sponge as a glaze to stick on the royal icing.
The final result!!
It's not perfectly perfect. It is a bit wonky, but it was made with love.
And that is the beauty of home baking!!
Happy Baking Everybody!!
