Cake day

Last year I made myself a black and purple black forest cake for my birthday. I selflessly took it to work and shared it with my workmates. This year I won't be making myself a birthday cake - I've made summer cupcakes for tomorrow.

Cake day cupcakes

Our office has a roster for cake. Every Tuesday, someone brings in a (usually home-made) cake. Fortuitously my cake day is this week - so I'm starting my celebrations early. It took me about 3 hours tonight to make and ice these cakes. I don't have a real oven in my flat - just a microwave convection, so I can only cook 6 cakes at a time. The icing also took a long time - washing out the piping thingy between every colour gets to be a drag, but I think the results are worth it. Now I just have to hope I get them all to work without damaging them.

Wish me luck!

Now can someone else post something please?!


  1. They are beautiful. Well done. You'll have fun with Nana's decoration moulds when you next visit. She made flowers to go on a cake for Daria. You just use icing mixture and can colour it first or add dust later.

  2. They look amazing Dayna!!! Too good to eat, so amazing, definitely worth the effort.
