The boys have been taking about having a castle cake for the longest time now.
Which means I have been thinking about making a castle cake for the longest time now.
Which means when it comes to actually making a castle cake you are not certain if you've bitten off more than you can chew (which was literal and figurative as there was some trial of cake last night!)
But then you are glad that
a) the boys for whom the cake is intended will see a castle cake and know that their Mummy loves them
b) camera angles are an amateur cake makers bestest friend, you don't have to show the bits that may not be working quite so well
c) making a cake means more than the end result, it also involves an evening with friends which includes your beloved who hangs about and puts in a cheeky two penny's worth every now and again, while being willing to rummage through the Duplo late at night to find knights and horses and such.
d) fondant is yummy, and full of energy to get you through to the last minute crisis of realising there is no door on the castle, quickly making it and retaking the camera angle friendly shots!
So with out further ado, here's some sneak peeks for the preparations for the Knights of Alberta party.
I will endeavour to get some picture in of the day, but I see that Johns birthday is still not recorded so I have time!
