Since I been on twitter I’ve become more and more jealous as I see the beautiful cakes people make for their children’s birthdays.
I am in awe of them.
It was the minecraft cake that @pols80 just made for her sons birthday that really inspired me.
I have seven kids from 20 to 9 years old. I’ve never made a birthday cake. Or any cake. I’ve made banana bread once though.
I want to be a mum who makes cakes. I want to make all the birthday cakes this year.
This is where the problem comes in ….
•I can’t bake , I fear baking so how do I bake a cake.
•how the hell do you know how to decorate them
•how do you physically decorate them.
• I own a mixing bowl ,a wooden spoon and a silicone square baking tray thing. That’s all. Also a slikkepot , which I think is a spatula in English but in Norway it’s a ” pot licker ”
I need your help.
• what do I need (equipment )
• how do I make a cake
• how do I decorate
• how do I get inspiration
•am I completely mad thinking I can do this.
