Liverpool FC - August 2016
Well, the only things I had any idea about Liverpool FC was ...
It's a footy club
It's red and white
I was asked to make a Liverpool birthday cake for a young lady
Aaaaand that's about it :-)
I initially wanted a football shape but was unable to get the tin(s), so I bought football shaped pieces cutters. Which, on the day of decorating I realised they'd only work on a spherical cake, not a flat one. No matter, I'd adapt.
As you can see the decorations consisted of a large printed icing sheet and footy 'pennies', but it also includes the red cake board, red ribbon and a white ribbon printed with red footbàlls. Oh I hope that's not overkill on the football theme.
The outside was decorated in white because the delighfull vanilla sponge is bright red. I hope someone sends me a pic of the inside so I can add it here.
There's never a dull moment with my cake baking experiences, but nothing went wrong with the sponge on this one, I guess I was awake this time :-D
I had to adapt the football shape icing because I didn't have a spherical cake to decorate, but I think this one has turned out rather well.
There you go Cerys, I hope you have a great Liverpool birthday xxx
Yummy red sponge inside (",)
