This time the challenge at The Game is Patty Cake.
“Make sure to have a cake, some cake, images of cake on your creation you make or make a cake.”
I decided to go with the option of making a cake, and combined the little I did to celebrate the Summer Solstice this year with my entry for this challenge. Here it is:
It’s a 2 layer ginger cake (use any cake mix you want, then add a couple of heaped teaspoons full of ground ginger; to taste). Between each layer is some homemade strawberry jam (the recipe linked to is technically for raspberry jam, but I used strawberries, and it doesn't matter what fruit you use for the jam recipe; I've done it with plums before even). On top is some butter icing. I had then planned to decorate it with icing flowers and leaves, but the icing mix for that didn’t work out. I then tried stars, but again it didn’t work out (I kept making it too runny so it didn’t set). I called it quits after that and decided to just decorate it with Cadburys milk chocolate buttons instead.
Why not see what you can make with a cake in your design? Or, maybe you could make a cake like I did? Check out the work of the rest of the design team for inspiration, and – if you decide to join in – don’t forget to enter your piece at The Game!
