April again, and it’s birthday cake season. My eldest son is first, and he’s a Doctor Who fanatic. I discussed what sort of cake I should make a few weeks ago, and I decided on a TARDIS cake. And here’s the picture.
I’ve got a two week gap now before I’ve got to make the next one, which I’ve been told should either be Superman, Fireman Sam, Batman or The Incredibles! So, nothing special then!
I was pleased with how this cake turned out. I think it looked better ‘in the flesh’, so to speak! I made a lemon madeira cake, then used lemon curd rather than jam to stick the icing on. I wasn’t able to use marzipan as a base, as only my mother and I like it. Then, I copied the windows and signs onto normal paper and stuck them on with some more lemon curd. I even remembered to take them off before I cut the cake. My memory is definitely improving! Anyway, I hope you like the cake. Sorry I didn’t make enough to share with everyone! But, this is the next best that I can do; a virtual slice!
