For our January CCC meeting we decided to try a different track, quite literally. We had Michael Jackson’s Black or White, My Girl Lollipop, Bed of Roses, Strawberry Fields and Barbie Girl. With a side portion of Spice Girls.
I made “Jammin'” Jamaican cake in the shape of a jam jar with cola laces for dreads but didn’t get a photo. I keep doing that, which might be an excuse for my lack of blogs, nothing to do with my addiction to crochet, no…
So I should probably explain the naked.
Not nude as in rude but as in icing free, our February meeting thankfully bypassed any themes involving hearts and turned into a “pimp my cake” session instead.
One of our members, Charlotte Briggs, teaches cake decoration. I went to a class for a feature a little while ago so was looking forward to refreshing my almost-non-existent piping skills.
I made lemon and blueberry sponge inspired by my favourite cupcakes
And then made it prettier. Only I didn’t want to cover all of it, thinking it was nice to see the blueberries so I went a little abstract.
And I was really chuffed with the results, as were my fellow cake clubbers
