Today my sister and her best mate came over to mine for a ‘Baking Test Day’ for her engagement party at the end of the month, just a day to try out the recipes we want to use on a few things and to work out timing etc.
Anyway I spent my time making the above. Its a Red Velvet and Vanilla checkerboard cake with a strawberry cream filling and vanilla fondant. I’ve never made this type of cake before, nor have I ever used fondant.
During the assembly it looked like a disaster but luckily the end product looked okai, I am particularly proud of the marbled blue fondant flower on top. Not bad for a first attempt.
