This was a dry run for the Monster's birthday cake and, halelujah, RTBC to the power of 1000, it worked!!! I used Mary Berry's recipe for Chocolate Birthday Cake but with some white chocolate butter icing. I intend to colour the icing blue to make water and then add some water themed decorations, boats, fish, a duck or two perhaps. All things the Monster loves. I need to put on my thinking cap to work out how I might fashion said decorations from Haribo sweets. Now where did I leave that damn thing, last seen circa January 2008?
Most importantly of course, the Monster loved the cake.
