Be my valentine

baking, cake, cakes

A love hearts cake. Two layer sponge – see my rose cupcake recipe, sandwiched with SMBC and crumb coat. Cover with fondant and finishing touches with pink modelling chocolate,

Swiss meringue buttercream (SMBC) is my stable and staple! go-to base if I am not using marzipan under fondant icing. Don't be intimidated by reading the process- you do however need a stand mixer.

Finally pink modelling chocolate – see earlier post on modelling chocolate stripes to see how versatile and easy candy melts are.

As for the motto- appropriate for a valentine's day dinner party with old friends

I love to hear your thought and answer any queries. Thanks for visiting-spread the cake love!

Welcome to my blog! After a L O N G break from blogging during which Instagram (vannilla)took over my life, I am returning in a more varied format. Yes, I will bake and have been a Thermomix users from the days before it was cult-like. I'll share the best but I will also include that other hobby in my life, photography from my small island and beyond. If you like what you see, I'd love to hear from you! Anne

i'd love to hear from you...
