These aren’t the cakes I intended to make because I couldn’t buy something I needed. These are made using blueberry and apple jam. These are simple vanilla and buttercream cakes. I used the jam for the filling and mixed it into the icing. And then finished off with a blueberry on top. Very delicious.
Once a month we hold a games night in the basement of a local tea shop. In August it turned 2. So lots of cakes were made in celebration.
My contributions were the cakepops at the front and the Mario Star biscuits on the left.
These were my first attempt at making cakepops. I think they turned out okay. They’re in the shape of katamari balls from Katamari Damacy. The Mario Star biscuits are a simple sugar cookie recipe. I make them every year that they’ve become a bit of a tradition.
There’s close-ups and more pictures of everyone’s cakes under the cut.
So my friend hosted his big BBQ summer party and I decided I needed to bake something special and summer-y to fit the occasion.
These are what I came up with:
The best thing about these is that they confused everyone. Is it a cake? Is it an ice cream? There’s only one way to find out! Eat them!
There are a couple of things I will do differently when I next make these. The first is to use one less egg. The recipe says to use 3 but I think it makes it a little bit too moist. The second is to take the tinfoil off before I start decorating them. Some of them are a little crooked because the Flakes weighed them to one side.
But they still look absolutely delicious.
I took the recipe from CookieGirl’s book Eat Me!
