I made a number cake!

As you know Millie turned 2 last week. I love making cakes, but have never made my childrens birthday cakes. However, on facebook a couple of weeks ago I saw a picture of a number cake covered in skittles.

So from that moment, it was decided that I would make Millie's birthday cake. We have a lovely cake shop in our town and I often go in their for last minute bits, they always seem to have exactly what I need and their prices are great. I popped in to enquire about hiring a number tin and to my surprise it was only £2 per day (with a £10 deposit)!

Now Millie is such a girly girl so I decided to use pink smarties instead of skittles. I made a chocolate cake (basic 200g of butter, sugar, sr flour, 1tsp baking powder, 2tbsp cocoa, 2 tbsp golden syrup, 4 eggs). I then cheated on the icing, because quite frankly, I love the taste of betty crocker chocolate fudge frosting! I used 3 (large) tubes of pink smarties and that just about covered the cake.

The cake tasted yummy and I am really chuffed that I made such a good job of it. Millies face when she saw it was priceless!

What do you think.....
