Cakebook Britain 2012

Silver lustre sprayed buttons… 1,650.

Why am I posting pictures of Chocolate Buttons, I hear you ask?
Well, this is just a snippet from our entry for Cakebook Britain, 2012.

Cakebook Britain 2012 

A GIANT, edible map, covered in cake replicas of famous British landmarks.
Sadly, we didn’t win.
Our entry was still brilliant, though, we thought!  It was huge – 1 metre by 54 cm, based around a hollow centre.  We baked 16 large cakes, of varying flavours, to build the cake up with.  We coloured 1.5 kg of fondant/sugarpaste icing, sprayed 1,650 chocolate buttons and needed 1kg of buttercream icing!

Here we are, beginning to carve.

Carving the cake….

The map, with all cakes positioned….

 Over the next week, I’ll be posting a kind of ‘step-by-step’ journal of the whole process…. keep a look out!
