Two minutes to go until my son's birthday starts officially. I'm up putting the finishing touches on the cake. It looks really cool! Don't you think?
I baked a marbled butter cake (pink and yellow inside) with hundreds and thousands sprinkled in the "brain" area. Next I iced it with plain vanilla icing as a crumb coat since I had cut away some parts to form a head and shoulders. This evening I piped flat bands of icing across as the bandages and added two purple jelly beans for the eyes. I used some of the cut-offs to make the nose, chin and forehead.
My son has no idea what kind of cake I have made. He is going to be absolutely delirious when he sees it!
Happy Birthday to my darling boy. Despite my moaning about him on a frequent basis I really do love him so much.
